THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
We celebrate our own independence this day and each day from the time we came into this program. No greed for gain, no fees, no thought of profit, no political allegiances. What we rejoice about is our returned rationality and regeneration as persons able to live normal lives. The things we accomplish for ourselves and others come from the Higher Power and twelve basic steps. Am I rejoicing today for my independence from turmoil and distress?
MEDITATION FOR THE DAY
What is sometimes termed conversion in religion is often the discovery of God as a friend during time of need. What is sometimes termed religion is the experiencing of the help and strength of God’s power in our lives. As God becomes our friend, we become friends to others. We experience true human friendship, and from this experience we can realize that God is our miracle-working Friend.
PRAYER FOR THE DAY
I pray that I may think of God as a Great Friend in time of need. I pray that I may follow wherever God leads me.
