We in A.A. are offering a spiritual program. The fundamental basis of
A.A. is belief in some Power greater than ourselves. This belief takes
us off the center of the universe and allows us to transfer our
problems to some power outside of ourselves. We turn to this Power
for the strength we need to get sober and stay sober. We put our drink
problem in God’s hands and leave it there. We stop trying to run our
own life and seek to let God run it for us. Do I do my best to give
Meditation For The Day
God is your healer and your strength. You do not have to ask Him to
come to you. He is always with you in spirit. At your moment of need
He is there to help you. Could you know God’s love and His desire to
help you, you would know that He needs no pleading for help. Your
need is God’s opportunity. You must learn to rely on God’s strength
whenever you need it. Whenever you feel inadequate to any situation,
you should realize that the feeling of inadequacy is disloyalty to God.
Just say to yourself: I know that God is with me and will help me to
think and say and do the right thing.
Prayer For The Day
I pray that I may never feel inadequate to any situation. I pray that I
may be buoyed up by the feeling that God is with me.
