Wisdom has little to do with our mental ability. With our Higher Power alongside us, we can achieve anything, even long-term recovery ONE DAT AT A TIME. In our Serenity Prayer, we ask God for wisdom and patience. It will come, as a result of treating our Program, the meetings, and the message as precious things that really matter. Wisdom comes to ordinary people like ourselves who try to live the program ONE DAY AT A TIME, not overnight, but as the accumulation of many 24 hours. Wisdom comes with practice, the practice of living a new way of life, a spiritual life resulting from our 12 Step Program.
