AA Thought for the Day

I have got over my procrastination. I was always putting
things off till tomorrow and as a result that never got
done. “There is always another day” was my motto instead
of “Do it now.” Under the influence of alcohol, I had
grandiose plans. When I was sober I was too busy getting
over my drunk to start anything. “Some day I’ll do that”
— but I never did it. In A.A. I have learned it’s better
to make a mistake once in a while than to never do
anything at all. We learn by trial and error. But we must
act now and not put it off until tomorrow. Have I learned
to do it now?

Meditation For The Day

“Do not hide your light under a bushel. Arise and shine,
for the light has come and the glory of the Lord has risen
in thee.” The glory of the Lord shines in the beauty of a
man’s character. It is risen in you, even though you can
realize it only in part. “Now you see as in a glass darkly,
but later you will see face to face.” The glory of the Lord
is too dazzling for mortals to see fully on earth. But some
of this glory is risen in you when you try to reflect that
light in your life.

Prayer For The Day

I pray that I may try to be a reflection of the Divine Light.
I pray that some of its rays may shine in my life.

For Us, It Is A Result Of The Promises, We Are Grateful.

If we are painstaking about this phase of our development, we will be amazed before we are half way through. We are going to know a new freedom and a new happiness. We will not regret the past nor wish to shut the door on it. We will comprehend the word serenity and we will know peace. No matter how far down the scale we have gone, we will see how our experience can benefit others. That feeling of uselessness and self pity will disappear. We will lose interest in selfish things and gain interest in our fellows. Self-seeking will slip away. Our whole attitude and outlook upon life will change. Fear of people and of economic insecurity will leave us. We will intuitively know how to handle situations which used to baffle us. We will suddenly realize that God is doing for us what we could not do for ourselves.
Are these extravagant promises? We think not. They are being fulfilled among us—sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly. They will always materialize if we work for them.
