Before we decide to quit drinking, most of us have come up against a
blank wall. We see that we’re licked, that we have to quit. But we
don’t know which way to turn for help. There seems to be no door in
that blank wall. A.A. opens the door that leads to sobriety. By
encouraging us to honestly admit that we’re alcoholics and to realize
that we can’t take even one drink, and by showing us which way to
turn for help, A.A. opens the door in that blank wall. Have I gone
through that door to sobriety?
Meditation For The Day
I must have a singleness of purpose to do my part in God’s work. I
must not let material distractions interfere with my job of improving
personal relationships. It is easy to become distracted by material
affairs, so that I lose my singleness of purpose. I do not have time to
be concerned about the multifarious concerns of the world. I must
concentrate and specialize on what I can do best.
Prayer For The Day
I pray that I may not become distracted by material affairs. I pray that
I may concentrate on doing what I can do best.
