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.

and the word ‘continued.’

‘Continued’ does not mean

occasionally, or frequently.

It means throughout

each day.”

As a drunk, the concern was always

with the inventory of the other guy.

In recovery, the alcoholic is always seeking

to do the next right thing and when there

is a mistake, we take your inventory

and make amends to those that we may have harmed.

We do this so that we may assure ourselves

that we will harbor no guilt or shame or

any of the ill feelings that were once a reason to drink.

Today, feel the feelings

and when the feeling is uncomfortable

take an inventory and be willing to right the wrong.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.

Step Ten

November Lanai 009

.

.

“10.  Continued to take

personal inventory

and when we were wrong

promptly admitted it.”

.

BB p 59

.

.

Putting down the drink is not the end of recovering,

it is the beginning of a journey that will last the rest of our lives.

As a part of that daily journey the program suggests that

whenever you have a feeling that is uncomfortable,

a feeling that may lead you to a drink,

you should stop right where you are,

make a thorough assessment of the situation

and when wrong, admit it, and when not wrong,

don’t gloat, just move on and learn from the lesson.

Today, don’t drink, don’t think, go to a meeting

and if you make a mistake, apologize.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.

A Daily Review

“When we retire

at night,

we constructively

review our day.”

.

BB p 86

.

.

In order to live in the here and now

we must make peace with the past and

pray for the strength and courage to do the

will of our Higher Power tomorrow.

By reviewing Steps Ten and Eleven and

applying their suggestions to our daily routine

we will discover the promises coming to fruition

in our lives.

Today, work the steps into your daily routine

and learn to know serenity and peace of mind.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.

Personal Inventory

.

“This thought brings us

to Step Ten, which suggests

we continue to take

personal inventory and

continue to set right

any new mistakes

as we go along.”

.

BB p 84

.

No lying, cheating or stealing, the things the alcoholic did

to allow him to drink the way the disease wanted him to.

However, mistakes do happen.

Errors in judgment do occur even when we thought

we were doing the right thing, when we meant no harm.

The sober and spiritual soul is not afraid to admit a slip up,

to honestly account for their faults.

Today, aim to make bed time a moment when you know

that you will be and are free of guilt, remorse and shame,

when you can applaud yourself  for a day of service to self,

another human being and the God of your understanding.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.
