The Lifeline

The life-line, the line of rescue, is the line from the soul to God. On one end of the life-line is our faith and on the other end is God’s power. ~ Anonymous. Twenty Four Hours A Day: Meditations (p. 24). Hazelden Publishing. Kindle Edition.

The problem with a life preserver
is that so often it keeps you afloat
but you’re on your own to get to safety.
They’re making remote control
automated devices today
but for me I’d prefer a strong pull
toward safety. We can rely on a lifeline
if the Power pulling us to safety
is God’s love. Isn’t that exactly what we have
in the rooms of Recovery?
