The Judge Of Your Worth,

.

“You alone are

the judge of your worth,

and your goal is

to discover infinite

worth in yourself,

no matter what

anyone else thinks.”

.

~ Deepak Chopra

.

It never is between you and them,

it is, has been and always will be

just between you and your Higher Power.

The Great Creator made you perfectly capable

of doing His will and the choice to do so is yours.

Today, pray, meditate;

seek the Spirit that is within you

and just do the next right thing,

love this world as being exactly

the way God wants it to be.

Recovery is to discover the infinite worth in yourself.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

Me, You and God

003

.

Pray as though

everything

depended on God.

Work as though

everything

depended on you.”

.

~ Saint Augustine

.

God has designed this world to be a “WE” world,

me, you and God; with the sole purpose of having

us work together to make this Uni-verse

a better place for all.

Today, pray to God that you may have only

kind and loving thoughts and that all of your actions

will make this “WE” world happy, joyous and free.

Today, act as though the world depends on you.

Recovery is depending on God and self.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.

A Longing Of The Soul

006

.

.

“Prayer is not asking.

It is a longing

of the soul.

It is daily admission

of one’s weakness.

It is better in prayer

to have a heart without words

than words without a heart.”

.

~ Mahatma Gandhi

.

Today I am sober, by the grace of God.

It was from the heart, a longing of my soul,  when I begged,

I pleaded, I cried out to a power higher than myself to

relieve me of the compulsion and obsession to drink alcohol.

God answers all prayers in God’s time and in a way

that He deems to be appropriate and His way has

turned out to always be the best way.

Every thought is a prayer so make it from the heart.

Be kind, be loving, be the person who makes this world

a better place for all.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.

All Miseries

007

.

”All men’s miseries

derive from not

being able to sit

in a quiet room

alone.

.

~ Blaise Pascal

.

Quiet the noisy mind.

When my sponsor said this for the first time

I had no idea what he was talking about.

When it was explained I knew exactly

of what he was speaking about, the resident rodents

in my head that were always running around

on that squeaky hamster wheel.

They were the addictive thoughts always creating

a cacophony of confusion and negativity,

causes for not wanting to be alone in the stillness.

Doing the steps, learning about prayer and meditation,

AA and my Higher Power have done for me what

I could not do on my own, quieting the noisy mind,

relieving me of my miseries.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.

The Daily Discipline

.

“The daily discipline

of prayer and meditation

will keep me in fit

spiritual condition,

able to face whatever

the day brings –

without the thought of a drink.”

.

Daily Reflections,  p. 317

.

What a wonderful way to begin the day,

instead of  waking up under that cloud of alcoholic smog

and worrying about when and where

I would get my next drink,

I now awaken to a routine that puts me

in closer contact to my Higher Power,

a daily discipline that brings sunshine into my life.

Today, be happy, joyous and free,

pray for guidance from the God of your understanding

and meditate, listen for His advice,

which is always to do the next right thing.

Recovery is one day at a time.

The Practice Of Prayer

.

“As the practice

of prayer continues,

I will find I don’t

need words,

for God can, and does,

hear my thoughts

through silence.”

.

Daily Reflections, p.322

.

Every thought is a prayer.

Silence is God’s opportunity to talk.

One of the benefits of sobriety

and of working the Twelve Steps of A. A.

is a discipline that allows one to practice

those things that improve one’s life.

Today, know that there is no right way to pray

and it is only by practice that you may discover

a way of praying that will be just right for you.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.

They Only Thought

.

“They took inventory

all right, but hung on

to some of the worst

items in stock.

They only thought

they had lost their

egoism and fear;

they only thought they had humbled themselves.”

.

Big Book,   p. 73

.

Thinking is the bane of the active alcoholic

and it is also the possible destroyer of the drunk

who is not totally honest when working the steps of A.A..

When you think that you are humble, you’re not.

One of the better lessons given by many sponsors

is that if it has a name, someone has done it before you

and the guilt and shame will go away

when you continue to work the steps

and when you honestly do your inventory.

Honesty is the first spiritual principal.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.
