July 13, 2018 – Today’s Gift from Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation

Friday, July 13, 2018

Today’s thought from the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation is:

AA Thought for the Day
AA is like a dike, holding back the ocean of liquor. If we take one glass of liquor, it is like making a small hole in the dike, and once such a hole has been made, the whole ocean of alcohol may rush in upon us. By practicing the AA principles we keep the dike strong and in repair.

Meditation for the Day
I keep as close as I can to my Higher Power. I try to think, act, and live as though I am always in God’s presence. Keeping close to a Power greater than myself is the solution to most of earth’s problems. I try to practice the presence of God in the things I think and do. That is the secret of personal power.

Prayer for the Day
I pray that I may keep close to the mind of God.
