AA Daily Reflection: March 10 – A Daily Reprieve
“On awakening let us think about the twenty-four hours ahead. We consider our plans for the day. Before we begin, we ask God to direct our thinking, especially asking that it be divorced from self-pity, dishonesty, and self-seeking motives. Under these conditions, we can employ our mental faculties with assurance, for after all God gave us brains to use. Our thought-life will be placed on a much higher plane when our thinking is cleared of wrong motives.” – Alcoholics Anonymous, p. 86
As we begin our day, let us take a moment to reflect on the power of a daily reprieve. We have been given the gift of sobriety, but we must continue to work to maintain it. We cannot afford to become complacent or to rest on our laurels.
Today, let us seek the guidance and direction of our Higher Power as we go about our daily activities. Let us ask for clarity of mind and the ability to see things from a new perspective. Let us remember that our thought-life is crucial to our spiritual growth, and let us strive to maintain a positive, honest, and selfless mindset.
