    A.A. Thought For The Day

    For the past two months we have been studying passages
    and steps from the Big Book. Now why not read the book
    itself again? It is essential that the A.A. program become
    part of us. We must have its essentials at our finger tips.
    We cannot study the big book too much or too often. The
    more we read it and study it, the better equipped we are
    to think A.A., act A.A., and live A.A. We cannot know too
    much about the program. The chances are that we will never
    know enough. But we can make as much of it our own as
    possible. How much of the Big Book have I thoroughly mastered?

    Meditation For The Day

    We need to accept the difficulties and disciplines of life
    so as to fully share the common life of other people. Many
    things that we must accept in life are not to be taken so
    much as being necessary for us personally, as to be experienced
    in order that we may share in the sufferings and problems of
    humanity. We need sympathy and understanding. We must share
    many of the experiences of life, in order to understand and
    sympathize with others. Unless we have been through the same
    experiences, we cannot understand other people or their makeup
    well enough to be able to help them.

    Prayer For The Day

    I pray that I may accept everything that comes my way as part
    of life. I pray that I may make use of it in helping my fellow men.

    NA Just For Today

    Hope

    “Gradually as we become more God-centered than self centered, our despair turns to hope.”
    Basic Text, p.92

    As using addicts, despair was our relentless companion. It colored our every waking moment. Despair was born of our experience in active addiction: No matter what measures we tried to make our lives better, we slid ever deeper into misery. Attempts we made to control our lives frequently met with failure. In a sense, our First Step admission of powerlessness was an acknowledgment of despair.

    Steps Two and Three lead us gradually out of that despair and into new hope, the companion of the recovering addict. Having accepted that so many of our efforts to change have failed, we come to believe that there is a Power greater than ourselves. We believe this Power can – and will – help us. We practice the Second and Third Steps as an affirmation of our hope for a better life, turning to this Power for guidance. As we come to rely more and more on a Higher Power for the management of our day – to – day life, the despair arising from our long experiment with self-sufficiency disappears.

    Just for today: I will reaffirm my Third Step decision. I know that, with a Higher Power in my life, there is hope.
