AA Thought for the Day
February 28, 2021

Some of us once had great self-confidence, but it didn’t fully solve the fear
problem, or any other. When it made us cocky, it was worse. Perhaps there
is a better way—we think so. For we are now on a different basis; the basis
of trusting and relying upon God. We trust infinite God rather than our finite
selves. . . . We ask Him to remove our fear and direct our attention to what
He would have us be. At once, we commence to outgrow fear.
- Alcoholics Anonymous, (How It Works) p. 68

Hi everyone, Phillip, alcoholic. My fearless days were running through my mind while listening. I did some ridiculous things. Danger was fun. Then a jackpot and fear stepped in and I was asking God for help. No longer fearless, whimpering on my knees. The jackpot passed and back to being loaded and fearless. This became a pattern. Eventually it was always fear, the drink quit working. That is when AA came into my life and I learned to face fear and quit trying to drown it. People at meetings held my hand and walked me through this. I wrote about fear and wrote. Finally I managed to tell someone all of it and prayed to give it away. That was a new world to me. Today I read every morning from a few books. It helps me with my faith and faith is what keeps the fear away. Thank you.
