AA Thought for the Day
It doesn’t do much good to come to meetings only once in a while and sit around, hoping to get something out of the program. That’s all right at first, but it won’t help us very long. Sooner or later, we have to get into action by coming to meetings regularly, by giving a personal witness of our experience with alcohol and by trying to help other alcoholics. Building a new life takes all the energy that we used to spend on drinking.
Am I spending at least as much time and effort on the new life that I’m trying to build in AA?
Meditation for the Day
With God’s help, I will build a protective screen around myself which will keep out all evil thoughts. I will fashion it out of my attitude toward God and my attitude toward other people. When one worrying or impatient thought enters my mind, I will put it out at once. I know that love and trust are the solvents for the worry and frets of life. I will use them to form a protective screen around me.
Prayer for the Day
I pray that frets and impatience and worry may not corrode my protective screen against all evil thoughts. I pray that I may banish all these from my life.
