AA Thought For The Day

When we came to our first A.A. meeting, we looked up at the wall at the end of the room and we saw the sign “But for the Grace of God.”  We knew right then and there that we would have to call on the Grace of God in order to get sober and get over our soul-sickness.  We heard speakers tell how they had come to depend on a Power greater than themselves.  That made sense to us and we made up our minds to try it.  Am I depending on the Grace of God to help me stay sober?

  1. Thank God for the gift of desperation.
    I was willing to try almost anything.
    I’m Harry, grateful alcoholic and devoted twelve stepper.

  2. I have learned the closer I get, in my heart, to God, the better.
    I found a way to do so was to rest quietly, as is suggested in the Long Form of the Twelfth Tradition.

    Barest sense of the beyond within, the just discernible edges, the dimmest glimmer, the warming fire kindling in heart, absorbing us… Her treasures to gift unto ourselves, She smiles…
    Praying to still
    Praying to open
    Praying to dissolve into all-surrounding love

    Grateful for the Gift

  3. Top of the morning family,
    RE: “Am I depending on the Grace of God to help me stay sober?”
    Pain is a golden motivator.
    We don’t choose God…
    God chooses us!
    Give us this day; our daily manna.
    It’s a good day to have a good day.
