AA Thought for the Day:

In the beginning of Alcoholics Anonymous there were only two persons. Now there are many groups and thousands of members. True, the surface has only been scratched. There are probably ten million or more persons in America alone who need our help. More and more people are making a start in AA each day. In the case of individual members, the beginning has been accomplished when they admit they are powerless and turn to a Power greater than themselves, admitting that their lives have become unmanageable. Our Higher Power works for good in all things and helps us to accomplish much in individual growth and in the growth of AA groups. Am I doing my part in helping AA to grow?

Meditation for the Day:

“Blessed are they that hunger and thirst after righteousness, for they shall be filled.” Only in the fullness of faith can the heart-sick and faint and weary be satisfied, healed, and rested. Think of the wonderful spiritual revelations still to be found by those who are trying to live the spiritual life. Much of life is spiritually unexplored country. Only to the consecrated and loving people who walk with God in spirit can these great spiritual discoveries be revealed. Keep going forward, and keep growing in righteousness.

Prayer for the Day:

I pray that I may not be held back by the material things of the world. I pray that I may let God lead me forward.
