AA Thought for the Day
May 21, 2023
~ Scroll Down for Share ~
On awakening let us think about the twenty-four hours ahead.
We consider our plans for the day. Before we begin, we ask
God to direct our thinking, especially asking that it be divorced
from self-pity, dishonest or self-seeking motives.
- Alcoholics Anonymous, (Into Action) p. 86
Thought to Ponder
Prayer asks the question. Meditation listens for the answer.

My name is Tom and I'm an alcoholic. With the grace of God I don't have to drink today, not if I don't want to. I'm 81 years old now, and life is so much different than it was when God showed me how not to drink and you showed me how to live. Things change ... times change. But life still goes on, one day at a time. I was only one day sober when my friend showed me "The very simple program." And what is said to do was, Ask God for his will for me, for this one day. Then to the best of my ability to follow that. And then at night, thank Him for everything that happened during the day. For the past 34 years, that has worked!! Every single day. Step 11. Thank you for being here for me. Prayer works.
