AA Thought for the Day
The AA program is more a way of building a new life than just a way of getting over drinking because, in AA, we don’t just stop drinking. We did that plenty of times in the old days when we “went on the wagon.” And, of course, we always started to drink again because we were only waiting for the time when we could fall off. Once we’ve got sober through the AA program, we start going uphill. In our drinking days, we were going downhill, getting worse and worse. We either go down or up.
Am I going uphill, getting better and better?
Meditation for the Day
I will try to obey God’s will day in and day out, in the wilderness plains as well as on the mountaintops of experience. It is in the daily strivings that perseverance counts. I believe that God is Lord of little things, the Divine Controller of little happenings. I will persevere in this new way of life. I know that nothing in the day is too small to be part of God’s scheme.
Prayer for the Day
I pray that the little stone which I put into the mosaic of my life may make a worthwhile pattern. I pray that I may persevere and so find harmony and beauty.
