AA Thought for the Day
Everyone who comes into AA knows from bitter experience that he or she can’t drink. I know that drinking has been the cause of all my major troubles or has made them worse. Now that I have found a way out, I will hang onto AA with both hands. Saint Paul once said that nothing in the world, neither powers nor principalities, life nor death, could separate him from the love of God.
Once I have given my drink problem to God, should anything in the world separate me from my sobriety?
Meditation for the Day
I know that my new life will not be immune from difficulties, but I will have peace even in difficulties. I know that serenity is the result of faithful, trusting acceptance of God’s will, even in the midst of difficulties. Saint Paul said: “Our light afflictions, which are but for a moment, work for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory.”
Prayer for the Day
I pray that I may welcome difficulties. I pray that they may test my strength and build my character.
