“God can be your shield. Then no problems of the world can harm you. Between you and all scorn and indignity from others is your trust in God, like a shining shield. Nothing can then have the power to spoil your inward peace.”– 24 Hours a Day 7/28
This tells me that no matter what the situation may be, no matter how much I dislike it, I have no reason to be upset. If I truly trust in my higher power, then I know that everything happens exactly as it is supposed to. Nothing is an accident. If I do my job, which is to stay connected to my higher power through AA meetings, helping others, my spiritual daily rituals, etc., then I can 100% trust in my higher power and there’s no reason to let anything seriously upset me.
This is easier said than done a lot of the time. But, I think this is the key to living happy, joyous, and free on a daily basis. Through the tools that we have been given from this program, I am set free no matter what happens. ILML!
