📕RecoveryJournals.org creates "Our Story" together a page a day.
Start journaling the unique book series that makes you an author and promotes better thinking by you writing the other half.
Hang out with us as we show the recovery life mixing in today’s world in a variety of ways with supportive social media and our website.
Today’s RJL meditation is about learning to be our-self and face all facets of our ways. In doing this our Higher Power deepens our love for all facets of life.

“Day Twenty-Eight -Honesty, Deep and Abiding
I am so glad that I don’t have to hide my creepy ways from You. It deepens my faith in You God, by telling You all my doubts about You, and all my troubles with others. I have hope, that You will clear my view and calm my defiance toward a world I am unable to change. All I can say is, I am showing up as I am, do with me what You will.
God just knowing that You are there for me through all that happens and that I can turn to You, no matter what happens, is a lifeline to reality. I am so glad You are there, when I wouldn’t be.”
“Relate, Comment, or Add to the Thought”
We recall the moments we begged for mercy because of the wreckage in our path –most of it self-created fallout, and we realize, that our Higher Power is still there. Yes, we pay the consequences –but if we can still guide our mind towards our Higher Power –than our Higher Power is still there. Through the thick and thin, but not according to our way.
In recovery, we learn to talk to our Higher Power anyway that works for us, -that means anyway that makes us open our mouth and communicate upward -toward something Greater than us.
Beginning my day right now, I am reminded that I am loved even on my worse day. I am grateful that I don’t have to have all the right answers to life and that God will guide me today. I will choose to show –up for life without the use of mind or mood-altering chemicals to mask my problems with life. Most of all I will not hide that I still think faulty and that God and the other people on this spinning world are still the answer to right thinking, for me. This may be true for you, too. So, ask Upward and find out for yourself.
Focus todays recovery meditation on Step Five -We admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
Keeping it simple the Fifth Step keeps us talking to God and to others-no matter what.
