It’s amazing and enjoyable to see the many lighting and lawn displays this time of year as we celebrate the Christmas season. What a credit it is to our resourcefulness and technological advancements seeing how all of these amazing displays are powered. There is even a gadget that electronically coats the entire outside of your home in electronic moving Christmas lights! It seems there is power available to support whatever we can imagine. That leads me to think about the things inside of us that perhaps either pride, fear, and or negativity keep us from trying, doing, or experiencing.
Perhaps it’s different for you, but “the committee” residing in my mind used to prevent me from trying to improve myself, not to mention growing mentally and spiritually. The result was I stayed stuck in my own mental prison void of spiritual growth and freedom from the bondage. It all changed when I was able to choose to fight for my freedom. As I grew my sobriety and my spiritual life, my fears quieted down, my pride and self-centeredness decreased, and the committee in my mind was voted out of office! Just like the virtually unlimited power sources we have in our homes, I was able to tap into the unlimited Power Source of Jesus and sobriety based on the maintenance of my spiritual condition through daily working of the 12 Steps. Where are you getting your power from? Check your experience…
“Much has already been said about receiving strength, inspiration, and direction from Him who has all knowledge and power.” Big Book pg 85
Lord, let us tap into Your power, grace and love to fuel and support all areas of our lives, AMEN

Have a blessed day y’all!
