Into Action - Thought for the day

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*Be A Sponsor*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

A.A. is more than a set of principles; it is a society of alcoholics in
action. We must carry the message, else we ourselves can wither and those
who haven't been given the truth may die.

I desperately wanted to live, but if I was to succeed, I had to become
active in our God-given program. I joined what became my group, where I
opened the hall, made coffee, and cleaned up. I had been sober about three
months when an old-timer told me I was doing Twelfth-Step work. What a
satisfying realization that was! I felt I was really accomplishing
something. God had given me a second chance, A.A. had shown me the way,
and these gifts were not only free -- they were also priceless! Now the
joy of seeing newcomers grow reminds me of where I have come from, where
I am now, and the limitless possibilities that lie ahead. I need to attend
meetings because they recharge my batteries so that I have light when it's
needed. I'm still a beginner in service work, but already I am receiving
more than I'm giving. I can't keep it unless I give it away. I am
responsible when another reaches out for help. I want to be there -- sober..

Twenty-Four Hours A Day by Hazelden /December 28th

A.A. Thought for the Day

A.A. may be human in its organization, but it is divine
in its purpose. The purpose is to point me toward God
and the good life. My feet have been set upon the right
path. I feel it in the depths of my being. I am going in
the right direction. The future can be safely left to God.
Whatever the future holds, it cannot be too much for me
to bear. I have the Divine Power with me to carry me
through everything that may happen. Am I pointed toward
God and the good life?

Meditation for the Day

Although unseen, the Lord is always near to those who
believe in Him and trust Him and depend on Him for the
strength to meet the challenges of life. Although veiled
from mortal sight, the Higher Power is always available
to us whenever we humbly ask for it. The feeling that God
is with us should not depend on any passing mood of ours;
we should try to be always conscious of His power and
love in the background of our lives.

Prayer for the Day

I pray that I may feel that God is not too far away to
depend on for help. I pray that I may feel confident
of His readiness to give me the power that I need.
