Daily Reflections

January 20


As we go through the day we pause, when agitated or doubtful, and ask for the right thought or action.


      Today I humbly ask my Higher Power for the grace to find the space between my impulse and my action; to let flow a cooling breeze when I would respond with heat; to interrupt fierceness with gentle peace; to accept the moment which allows judgment to become discernment:  to defer to silence when my tongue would rush to attack or defend. 
     I promise to watch for every opportunity to turn toward my Higher Power for guidance. I know where this power is:  it resides within me, as clear as a mountain brook, hidden in the hills -- it is the unsuspected Inner Resource.  
     I thank my Higher Power for this world of light and truth I see when I allow it to direct my vision.  I trust it today and hope it trusts me to make all effort to find the right thought or action today.
