God’s Loving Discipline




“The last three Steps

of the program invoke

God’s loving discipline

upon my willful nature.”


Daily Reflections,  p. 317



It is suggested that the First Step is the only Step

that we can do perfectly and it should be done every day.

However, the action steps;

Ten, a daily inventory,

Eleven, prayer and meditation,

Twelve, part one, work with others,

part two, practice these principles in all of our affairs,

when worked daily they all greatly contribute to

the quality of one’s sobriety.

Learning to live by the guidance of God’s will for us

is the ultimate goal of the Twelve Steps

and working the last three Steps on a daily basis

allows us to grow spiritually and to accept the changes

that life presents to all.

Today, work a Step, celebrate sobriety.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.


ME and the Boss


And, if no one has told you yet today,

God loves you and so do we.
