AA Thought for the Day
When we first came into AA, a sober life seemed strange. We wondered what life could possibly be like without ever taking a drink. At first, a sober life seemed unnatural. But the longer we’re in AA, the more natural this way of life seems. And now we know that the life we’re living in AA, the sobriety, the fellowship, the faith in God and the trying to help each other, is the most natural way we could possibly live.
Do I believe it’s the way God wants me to live?
Meditation for the Day
I will learn to overcome myself, because every blow to selfishness is used to shape the real, eternal, unperishable me. As I overcome myself, I gain that power which God releases in my soul. And I, too, will be victorious. It is not the difficulties of life that I have to conquer so much as my own selfishness.
Prayer for the Day
I pray that I may obey God and walk with Him and listen to Him. I pray that I may strive to overcome my own selfishness.
