AA Thought for the Day
In AA, we have to re-educate our minds. We have to learn to think differently. We have to take a long view of drinking instead of a short view. We have to look through the glass to what lies beyond it. We have to look through the night before to the morning after. No matter how good liquor looks from the short view, we must realize that in the long run it is poison to us.
Have I learned to look through the bottle to the better life that lies ahead?
Meditation for the Day
If you are honestly trying to live the way you believe God wants you to live, you can get guidance from God in times of quiet communion with Him, provided your thoughts are directed towards God’s will and all good things. That attitude of, “Thy will, not mine, be done,” leads to clear guidance. Act on this guidance and you will be led to better things. Your impulses seem to become less your own and more the leading of God’s spirit acting through your thoughts. Obeyed, they will bring you the answers to your prayers.
Prayer for the Day
I pray that I may try to think God’s thoughts after Him. I pray that my thoughts may be guided by His thoughts.
