Long experience has proved that the Gamblers Anonymous Program and Twelve Steps will work for any person who approaches them with an open mind. We have to remember that we can’t expect miracles overnight; after all, it took years to create the situation in which we find ourselves today. I’ll try to be less hasty in drawing judgmental conclusions. I’ll hang on to the expectation that the GA Program can change my entire life as long as I give it a chance.
Have I begun to realize that my ultimate contentment doesn’t depend on having things work out my way?
Today I Pray
I pray for a more receptive attitude; for a little more patience, a little less haste, and more humility in my judgments. May I always understand that change will come—it will all happen—if I will listen for God’s will. God grant me perseverance, for sometimes I must wait awhile for the Steps to take effect.
