June 17, 2015 – Readings in Recovery: Twenty-Four Hours a Day

Twenty-Four Hours a Day

AA Thought for the Day
We in AA have the privilege of living two lives in one lifetime: one life of drunkenness, failure, and defeat; then, through AA, another life of sobriety, peace of mind, and usefulness. We who have recovered our sobriety are modern miracles. And we’re living on borrowed time. Some of us might have been dead long ago. But we have been given another chance to live.

Do I owe a debt of gratitude to AA that I can never repay as long as I live?

Meditation for the Day
Thinking about God in love and worship drives away evil. It is the thought before which the hosts of evil flee. The thought of a Power greater than yourself is the call for a lifeline to rescue you from temptation. The thought of God banishes loneliness and dispels gloom. It summons help to conquer your faults. Think of God as often as possible. Use the thought prayerfully and purposefully. It will carry your thoughts away from material things and toward the spiritual things that make life worthwhile.

Prayer for the Day
I pray that I may think of God often. I pray that I may rest in peace at the thought of His love and care.
