Since part of my OA action plan is to journal my thoughts after reading a daily OA meditation, I might as well pput it here.
Today, Oct 5, 2013, from OA For Today, the passage I read is on hating others... My response:
I don't hate anyone. I have long since moved past that part of my life. God knows that I am no better than ANYONE else, anywhere. I am good; I am wonderfully made. So are they. They have sinned and hurt others; so have I. I have no room for hate.
They make a good point that holding in hate is not much better than showing it. It's still in your heart, and still rots you. I thank God with all my heart for the day He showed me that in a Kroger parking lot about 8 years ago. Animosity, tearing down others, if it's in my heart, my heart is still black.
I had some brilliant thought earlier today about how to apply this passage to a part of my life other than the emotion of hate, but I've lost it now. Some genius I am, LOL.
Going to sleep now with a huge bloated stomach and legs that rub together again when I walk. Praying for a beautiful day tomorrow.
For today, I will be abstinent, just for today.
