Am I living in a constant state of surrender?

Am I living in a constant state of surrender?

Today’s thought from the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation is:

Reflection for the Day

The first psychiatrist to recognize the work of Alcoholics Anonymous, Dr. Harry Tiebout, used many concepts of the Program in his own practice. Over many years, the doctor’s study of the ”conversion experience” led him to see, first, that it is the act of surrender which initiates the switch from negative to positive; second, that the positive phase is really a state of surrender which follows the act of surrender; and third, that the state of surrender, if maintained, supplies an emotional tone to all thinking and feeling that insures healthy adjustment. Am I living in a constant state of surrender?

Today I Pray

May I understand that I do not have to ”unlearn” my respect for ”self-reliance,” that trait of character, which I heard praised so often from the time I was a tiny child. Only my understanding of the word must change. For as I come to know that ”self” is part of God, that I am nothing except in God’s Being, there is no quarrel between self-reliance and God-reliance. May I rely upon that self, which is God’s.

Today I Will Remember

Not part-god, but part of God.
