Twenty-Four Hours a Day

AA Thought for the Day
Disillusionment and spiritual confusion mark our age. Many of us have cast aside old ideas without acquiring new ones. Many men and women are creeping through life on their hands and knees, merely because they refuse to rely on any power but themselves. Many of them feel that they are being brave and independent, but actually they are only courting disaster. Anxiety and the inferiority complex have become the greatest of all modern plagues. In AA, we have the answer to these ills.

Have I ceased to rely on myself only?

Meditation for the Day
Disillusionment and doubt spoil life. The doubting ones are the disillusioned ones. When you are in doubt, you are on the fence. You are not going anywhere. Doubt poisons all action. “Well, if I don’t know” – so you don’t do anything. You should meet life with a “Yes,” an affirmative attitude. There is good in the world and we can follow that good. There is power available to help us to do the right thing; therefore, we will accept that power. There are miracles of change in people’s lives; therefore, we will accept those miracles as evidence of God’s power.

Prayer for the Day
I pray that I will not be paralyzed by doubt. I pray that I may go along on the venture of faith.
