Twenty-Four Hours a Day
Sunday, March 5, 2017
 
AA Thought for the Day
Sometimes we try too hard to get this program. It is better to relax and accept it. It will be given to us, with no effort on our part, if we stop trying too hard to get it. Sobriety can be a free gift of God, which he gives us by His grace when He knows we are ready for it. But we have to be ready. Then we must relax, take it easy and accept the gift with gratitude and humility. We must put ourselves in God’s hands. We must say to God: “Here am I and here are all my troubles. I’ve made a mess of things and can’t do anything about it. You take me and all my troubles and do anything you want with me.”

Do I believe that the grace of God can do for me what I could never do for myself?

Meditation for the Day
Fear is the curse of the world. Many are our fears. Fear is everywhere. I must fight fear as I would a plague. I must turn it out of my life. There is no room for fear in the heart in which God dwells. Fear cannot exist where true love is or where faith abides. So I must have no fear. Fear is evil, but “perhaps love casteth out all fear.” Fear destroys hope, and hope is necessary for all of humanity.

Prayer for the Day
I pray that I may have no fear. I pray that I may cast all fear out of my life.

  1. Unquestionably believe that which you said.
    Your favorite justification appeared to be on the web the easiest thing
    to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get
    irked while people consider worries that they plainly do not know about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having
    side effect , people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more.
