A.A. Today: The Main Business


wp-1485821892780.jpgAA Today are daily readings from the book “Twenty-Four Hours A Day.”

“Twenty-Four Hours A Day is intended for members of Alcoholics Anonymous as a help in their program of living one day at a time.

It is designed for those who want to start each day with a few minutes of thought, meditation, and prayer.”

February 21, 2016

I go to the A.A. meetings because it helps me in my business of keeping sober.  And I try to help other alcoholics when I can, because that’s part of my business of keeping sober.  I also have a partner in this business and that’s God.  I pray to Him every day to help me to keep sober.

As long as I keep in mind that liquor can never be my friend again, but is now my deadly enemy, and as long as I remember that my main business is keeping sober and that it’s the most important thing in my life, I believe I’ll be prepared for that crucial moment when the idea of having a drink pops into my mind.  When that idea comes, will I be able to resist it and not take that drink?

Meditation for the Day

I will be more afraid of spirit-unrest, of soul-disturbance, of any ruffling of the mind, than of earthquake or fire.  When I feel the calm of my spirit has been broken by emotional upset, then I must steal away alone with God, until my heart sings and all is strong and calm again.  Uncalm times are the only times when evil can find an entrance.  I will beware of unguarded spots of unrest.  I will try to keep calm, no matter what turmoil surrounds me.

Prayer for the Day

I pray that no emotional upsets will hinder God’s power in my life.  I pray that I may keep a calm spirit and a steady heart.

      1. You laugh, it’s bad when you’re standing in line, praying(screaming with my inner voice), “Lord, please don’t let me loooooooooose my crap in this store!!!! Please don’t let me start cussing this old lady out!!!! She’s a 100. Lord, You know how I am, and I know You don’t want me to be this way” Please, make her hurry up!!!!!!! I mean prayers are suppose to be pretty and uplifting, right??? Here I am praying not to be an ass 🙂 God must love me, or He’d have pinched my head off a long time ago.
