Learning to Rely

We learn from an early age to rely on others. As children we rely on adults to keep us healthy, safe, and to help us grow. As adults we learn that self- reliance only takes us so far and we need to rely on people, places, and things to get through our daily journey. This is a good plan but we are only as good as what it is we rely upon.

Think about it. People are human after all and prone to failures and mistakes. Places can change due to the people in them or economic circumstances. Things like electronics get outdated and even obsolete. So the question is what can we rely upon that never changes and always is in step with our lives?

Maybe it’s different for you, but the answer for me and my house has been, is, and will forever be to rely on our relationship with God through Jesus and the Holy Spirit… Check your experience…

“When we saw others solve their problems by a simple reliance upon the Spirit of the Universe, we had to stop doubting the power of God.” Big Book pg 52

Lord, let us learn to rely on You and trust Your presences and guidance in our lives, AMEN.  

“…we stopped relying on ourselves and learned to rely only on God,” 2 Corinthians 1:9

Have a blessed day y’all!  

We have not experienced a time, season, or situation like this in our lifetimes. How about a daily dose of hope and inspired thought? Join me in looking at the things we face daily with passages from both the Big Book and Bible!
