Another of the mottoes of A.A. is “But for the Grace of God.” Once
we have fully accepted the program we become humble about our
achievement. We do not take too much credit for our sobriety.
When we see another suffering alcoholic in the throes of
alcoholism, we say to ourselves: “But for the Grace of God, there
go I.” We do not forget the kind of people we were. We
remember those we left behind us. And we are very grateful to
the grace of God which has given us another chance. Am I truly
grateful for the grace of God?
Meditation For The Day
A consciousness of God’s presence, as One who loves you makes all
life different. The consciousness of God’s love promotes the
opening of your whole being to God. It brings wonderful relief from
the cares and worries of our daily lives. Relief brings peace and
peace brings contentment. Try to walk in God’s love. You will have
that peace which passes all understanding and a contentment that
no one can take from you. Feel sure of God’s unfailing love and
care for you and for all His children. There is freedom and serenity
in those who walk in God’s love, held safe in His loving care.
Prayer For The Day
I pray that I may walk in God’s love, I pray that, as I go, I may feel the
caring of God’s power in my steps and the joy of His love in my heart.
