“Offer new prospects friendship and fellowship. Tell them that if
they want to get well you will do anything to help. Burn the idea into
the consciousness of new prospects that they can get well,
regardless of anyone else. Job or no job, spouse or no spouse, they
cannot stop drinking as long as they place dependence on other
people ahead of dependence on God. Let no alcoholic say they
cannot recover unless they have their family back. This just isn’t so.
Their recovery is not dependent upon other people. It is dependent
on their own relationship with God.” Can I recognize all excuses
made by a prospect?
Meditation For The Day
The spiritual life depends upon the unseen. To live the spiritual
life you must believe in the unseen. Try not to loose the
consciousness of God’s spirit in you and in others. As a child in its
mother’s arms, stay sheltered in the understanding and love of
God. God will relieve you of the weight of worry and care, misery
and depression, want and woe, faintness and heartache, if you will let
Him. Lift up your eyes from earth’s troubles and view the glory of
the unseen God. Each day try to see more good in people, more of
the unseen in the seen.
Prayer For The Day
I pray that I may rest and abide in the presence of the unseen God. I
pray that I may leave my burdens in His care.
