DAY TWENTY-EIGHT OF A FORTY-DAY PRACTICE

MY MISSION STATEMENT - I am devoted, dedicated, committed to experiencing Your Presence, Father consciously, consistently within me and everywhere present. I want to know, to realize, to live for Your Will for me, empowered by Your loving grace. My mission in now clear, I need, I want to share all I am given with whomever You Will, Father. I look to You as my only Source to provide me with everyone and everything it takes to carry out the Mission You gave me. Thank You.

TODAY: ENRICHING

I realize just making a list of the people; places and things I am grateful for will not cause me to feel gratitude. To experience gratitude like love, it comes only by grace. I do loving acts often as the way of life I chose, but when I feel love like gratitude I know it’s unearned, it’s a gift of grace. I realize abundance of everything and everyone I receive is a gift of grace and far beyond anything I could hope for. Yet at times divine discontent takes over and I feel it is not enough and my gratitude steps back. How can I feel enriched and grateful and in a blink I am not? To "practice these principles in all my affairs", takes on a new meaning.

I am enriched by the three principles Spiritual Gift of our Program; the first Spiritual Gift is the awakening to the Presence of our Higher Power. The second Spiritual Gift is love; we tried to carry this message. The third Spiritual Gift is our mission, being the created individual we are, our Creator’s intended Will … and to practice these principles in all our affairs.

I am enriched Spiritually through prayer, meditation and contemplation and that direct mystical union with the Higher Power within a sober me. I am enriched mentally as I am guided into sober thinking. I am enriched physically with a regenerated body and world living sober. I am enriched emotionally by teaching, sharing the sober love I am, we are. I am enriched socially by sharing my sober, loving mission, my heart's desire. I willingly pass on all the enrichment; I am able out of the abundance I am emerged in. I am an Enriched Enrich-er Enriching.

Divine discontent draws me to it when it is time to grow, to expand. I realize once again I have not asked for too much but too little because our/my true Source is Infinite. "To be over mindful of the gift is to question the generosity of the giver." The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran
