All alcoholics have personality problems. They drink to
escape from life, to counteract feelings of loneliness or
inferiority, or because of some emotional conflict within
them, so that they cannot adjust themselves to life.
Alcoholics cannot stop drinking unless they find a way to
solve their personality problems. That’s why going on the
wagon doesn’t solve anything. That’s why taking the pledge
usually doesn’t work. Was my personality problem ever
solved by going on the wagon or taking the pledge?
Meditation For The Day
God irradiates your life with the warmth of His spirit.
You must open up like a flower to this divine irradiation.
Loosen your hold on earth, its cares, and its worries.
Unclasp your hold on material things, relax your grip, and
the tide of peace and serenity will flow in. Relinquish
every material thing and receive it back again from God.
Do not hold on to earth’s treasures so firmly that your
hands are too occupied to clasp God’s hands as He holds
them out to you in love.
Prayer For The Day
I pray that I may be open to receive God’s blessing.
I pray that I may be willing to relinquish my hold on
material things and receive them back from God.
