Twenty-Four Hours a Day

AA Thought for the Day
We in Alcoholics Anonymous do not enter into theological discussions but, in carrying our message, we attempt to explain the simple “how” of the spiritual life. How faith in a Higher Power can help you to overcome loneliness, fear and anxiety. How it can help you to get along with other people. How it can make it possible for you to rise above pain, sorrow and despondency. How it can help you to overcome your desires for the things that destroy.

Have I reached a simple, effective faith?

Meditation for the Day
Expect miracles of change in people’s lives. Do not be held back by unbelief. People can be changed, and they are often ready and waiting to be changed. Never believe that human nature cannot be changed. We see changed people every day. Do you have the faith to make those changes possible? Modern miracles happen every day in the lives of people. All miracles are in the realm of personalities. Human nature can be changed and is always being changed. But we must have enough faith so that we can be channels for God’s strength into the lives of others.

Prayer for the Day
I pray that I may have the faith to expect miracles. I pray that I may be used by God to help change the lives of others.
