2965_Sweet-puppy-listening-to-music-with-headphonesSelf Growth is an inner journey, but it often means going outside ourselves. In the past, we often were deaf to the words of others. Now we are discovering that God gave us ears for a reason.

Listening to others may be new to us, but we have so much to gain. Others may have learned ways to solve problems we can’t figure out. We may think our lives are unique, only to discover others have had the same experiences. There is so much insight, wisdom, and love to share. Now that we’re stronger, we can admit we need help, and accept that help with a joyful heart.

Today let me have the courage to listen to those people whom I respect.

Experiencing Some Growing Change

The reality is that changes are coming . . .They must come. You must share in bringing them.John Hersey

By Hazelden Meditation Series

time-for-changeChange. It’s scary. It’s hard. It’s needed. Sometimes it feels good; other times it feels bad. But one thing is for sure: it keeps on happening.

Just when our life seems settled, it changes. We can’t stop life. We can’t stay this age forever. The world changes. Life moves on. There are always new things to do and learn.

Change means we’re always beginners in some ways. We need to ask for wisdom and courage. We get it by listening, by praying, by meditating. When we ask, our Higher Power will teach us to be part of good changes.

Prayer for the Day

Higher Power, help me believe that Your plans call for good changes.

Action for the Day

Today I’ll think about the changes in my life. I’ve lived through a lot. I’ll be okay when more changes come, with God‘s help. I can keep on growing.

Being The Amazing Following Leader

The best leaders are those who know how to follow. –Anonymous

By: Hazelden Meditation Series

Am I a leader or a follower? The fact is, I am responsible for where I end up. If I choose to be a follower, I’d better follow leaders who know where they’re going. And I had better know where they’re going.

If I choose to be a leader, I’d better know that I’m responsible for getting myself on the right path. I also must be honest with my followers, so they can make good choices. I’m not responsible for my followers’ choices, but I must give them the truth. Being a leader doesn’t always mean I know where I’ll end up. But it can mean that I know I’m on the right path, following the lead from my Higher Power – one step at a time.

Prayer for the Day

Higher Power, give me the faith and courage to choose good leaders to follow. When it is Your will, help me be a good leader.

Action for the Day

Today I’ll list my leaders. They might be a Higher Power, or a friend. I’ll think of why I choose to follow these leaders.
