AA Thought for the Day
October 13, 2020
A Working Faith
This lack of anchorage to any permanent values, this blindness
to the true purpose of our lives, produced another bad result.
For just so long as we were convinced that we could live
exclusively by our own individual strength and intelligence, for
just that long was a working faith in a Higher Power impossible.
This was true even when we believed that God existed.
- Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, (Step Seven) p. 72
Thought to Ponder
One of the many differences between me and God:
God doesn't want to be me.
E G O = Edging God Out.
