It’s not torture…by Melodie Beattie


The fog lifts. The way becomes clear. It is with sheer joy that we realize we’re not alone. Something valuable and important was being worked out. However difficult that process, it changed us, transformed us, took us to a new place.

“Next time,” we think, “I won’t ride that extra roller coaster of emotion caused by not trusting the process. I’ll trust it all along.”

Prayer: Higher Power, help me remember that you’re not torturing me, you’re teaching me. Please show me – in a way I can understand—what you want me to learn. Help me remember that practicing the values I’m learning is the true source of joy. Guide and bless me in my pilgrimage through the year.
