Day Twenty-Five Do the Next Right Thing
Apparently, it seems there are times that I don’t see the answers because I keep looking for the one I’m giving, thinking it’s the one You will give. Why do You let me do this? Don’t give me that free will stuff either, God! God, please hear me, sometimes I feel confused while I am waiting for answers or seeking them. I just don’t know what to do sometimes. Show me how to stop this or how to accept I’ll always do this, so I can get past the fact that what looks horrible to me, is Your answer, and stop kidding myself and move on with living life.
I ask You to continue giving me strength to carry on while I am in this process of discerning what is what, in life. Until situations are clear, I’ll just do the next right thing.

We do not have to have it all together, -we don’t even have to know which way is up. We only have to be looking for a way through the confusion to clarity.
In recovery, we talk to our Higher Power about life, we ask to be shown how to live it, and then just do the next right thing that is with-in our reach. It is not complicated. Our Higher Power turns our messes into miracles on a daily basis –we just don’t always link it back to the source. Link it.
Facing the day ahead I am reminded to apply a coping skill for the confusion. I will remember throughout the day to mentally and physically seek a better way. Followed by the ease of simply choosing to do the next right thing in front of me. I can definitely do that today. So, can you.
Focus today's recovery meditation on Step 11 -We sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.
Step 11 helps us learn to talk to and to Be Still with our belief system -even if is only for a moment, to direct our heart and our feet.
