Deprived Ourselves
The notion that we would still live our own lives, God helping a little now
and then, began to evaporate. Many of us who had thought ourselves
religious awoke to the limitations of this attitude. Refusing to place God
first, we had deprived ourselves of His help. But now the words
"Of myself I am nothing, the Father doeth the works" began to
carry bright promise and meaning.

- Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, (Step Seven) p. 75

Thought to Ponder
I can't do God's will my way.

AA-related 'Alconym'
F R O G  =   Fully Rely On God.

Thanks to all of you for sharing so generously of your experience, strength and hope in carrying the AA message.
Grateful to serve,
peyton
