AA Thought for the Day:

When we first came into AA, a sober life seemed strange. We wondered what life could possibly be like without ever taking a drink. At first, a sober life seemed unnatural. But the longer we’re in AA, the more natural this way of life seems. And now we know that the life we’re living in AA — the sobriety, the fellowship, the faith in God, and the trying to help each other — is the most natural way we could possibly live. Do I believe it’s the way God wants me to live?

Meditation for the Day:

I will learn to overcome myself, because every blow to selfishness is used to shape the real, eternal, unperishable me. As I overcome myself, I gain that power which God releases in my soul. And I will be victorious. It is not the difficulties of life that I have to conquer so much as my own selfishness.

Prayer for the Day:

I pray that I may obey God and walk with Him and listen to Him. I pray that I may strive to overcome my own selfishness.
