Forewarned, forearmed; being prepared is half the victory.
–Miguel de Cervantes
There will be hard times in our program. There will be hard times in our life. That’s the way life is. It helps if we accept this. Then we can prepare for tough times. We can prepare by getting a good set of habits and sticking to them. We can make it a habit to give time to our program each day.
Sticking to good habits is like having a savings account: when hard times come, we can take the "investment" we’ve made and overcome our problems.
Prayer for the Day
Higher Power, help me accept that there will be hard times. Help me prepare for them. With Your help, I’ll stay close to You, my friends, and the program.
Action for the Day
I’ll put something into my program "savings account" today. I’ll make that extra call. I’ll read a little longer or go to an extra meeting.
