2022 | Day Fifty-Eight | Thought for Today

One of the things that led to my downfall previously in recovery was the need to tell the best stories in meetings, (the drunk a-logs)
I remember an old-timer in an A.A. meeting in Western Australia asking me the question “how old are you? What have you done in life?” When I told him I was 23 he said to me” You can’t be an alcoholic you are too young. Go and get some rungs on the board and then come back.” Recovery has nothing to do with where you have been and what you have done. It’s about where you are right now and realizing to move forward you need God’s help.

Remember where you came from, accept where you are now and thank God for bringing you here. All of us got here through different circumstances but we all got here with His help and we all t need to have an attitude of gratitude when we think of what He has done and what He is going to do in and through our lives.

Just for today help me remember today God that You love me just the way I am. I don’t need to live up to anyone’s expectations but Yours. I don’t need anyone’s permission to know that my name is Archie and I am a recovered alcoholic. Recovered through Your saving Grace and Your spirit moving in and through my life on a daily basis.
