Default Daily Reprieve - February

February 1

A DAILY PROCESS WITH EVERLASTING REWARD

“We feel a man is unthinking when he says that sobriety is enough.” Alcoholics Anonymous, page 82

“Since God chose you to be the holy people that he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. You must make allowance for each other's faults and forgive the person who offends you.” Colossians 3: 12 &13

For what it’s worth: Early in recovery I felt threatened by anything appearing religious. I recall fussing and cussing because the Big Book says “we are not saints”, yet it seemed Alcoholics Anonymous was trying to make me one. Was not being sober enough? Why did I have to pray for people who had wronged me? Why did I have to examine my own behavior every time something went sour in my life? Why could I just not blame others? Many sober years were necessary for me to understand why Alcoholics Anonymous demanded so much. It was far more than not drinking. It was to discover and achieve what I really wanted in life: love, worth, serenity and peace. First, I had to be free of any prejudice or aversion. Then I was ready to pursue a close, conscious contact with my Heavenly Father. Although difficult, it is no more than a daily possess…with everlasting reward. Moreover, Alcoholics Anonymous and my Heavenly Father always support my efforts, especially on those days I do not do well.

God bless you.
Joe W.
