15th September Daily Reflection

Post by Jaywalker Steve »

A NEW LIFE

Yes, there is a substitute and it is vastly more than that. It is a fellowship in Alcoholics Anonymous. . . . Life will mean something at last.
— ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, p. 152

Life is better without alcohol. A.A. and the presence of a Higher Power keeps me sober, but the grace of God does even better; it brings service into my life. Contact with the A.A. program teaches me a new and greater understanding of what Alcoholics Anonymous is and what it does, but most importantly, it helps to show me who I am: an alcoholic who needs the constant experience of the Alcoholics Anonymous program so that I may live a life given to me by my Higher Power.

AA gave me a road map for life. While scouring the map I discovered my higher power. There are many routes to my destination but making constant use of the map insures that I don't take too many side roads from the indicated route while completing my travels. Definitely need to remember not to lock the map away in the glove box and forget about it. Did that for years and wound up in hell. :shock:
