A.A. Thought for the Day

Let us consider the term “spiritual experience” as given

are changed. The nature of this change is evident in

Meditation For The Day

“Come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy laden and I
will give you rest.” For rest from the care of life, you
can turn to God each day in prayer and communion. Real
relaxation and serenity comes from a deep sense of the
fundamental goodness of the universe. God’s everlasting
arms are underneath all and will support you. Commune with
God, not so much for petitions to be granted as for the
rest that comes from relying on His will and His purposes
for your life. Be sure of God’s strength available to you,
be conscious of His support, and wait quietly until that
true rest from God fills your being.

Prayer For The Day

I pray that I may be conscious of God’s support today.
I pray that I may rest safe and sure therein.
