AA Thought For The Day

A.A. Thought for the Day

The A.A. way is the way of sobriety, and yet there are slips. Why do these slips occur? Why don't we all accept A.A. and stay sober from then on? There are many reasons, but it has been proved without exception that once we have become alcoholics we can never drink successfully again. This has never been disproved by any case we know of. Many alcoholics have tried drinking after a period of sobriety from a few days to a few years and no one that we know of has been successful in becoming a normal drinker. Could I be the only exception to this rule?

Meditation for the Day

"We are gathered together in Thy name." First, we are gathered together, bound by a common loyalty to God and to each other. Then, when this condition has been fulfilled, God is present with us. Then, when God is there and one with us, we voice a common prayer. Then it follows that our prayer will be answered according to God's will. Then, when our prayer is answered, we are bound together in a lasting fellowship of the spirit.

Prayer for the Day

I pray that I may be loyal to God and to others. I pray that my life today may be lived close to His and to theirs.

Easy Does it..Keep It Simple..Let Go and Let God..

Yes, slips do happen and some do go back out to see if they can drink normally. The doors of AA are always open to anyone who wants what we have. I have seen some over the years that go back out and never make it back, they die before they get back. That breaks my heart, but again I have to remember we carry the message, not the alcoholic. I have to "Let Go and Let God" and He is so much bigger and wiser than I am . Thank God !

Praying all have a awesome sober day.



Courage is fear that has said its prayers.
