December 30 Reflection of the Day
My life before coming to Gamblers Anonymous was not unlike the lives of so many of us who were cruelly buffeted and tormented by the power of our addiction. For years, I had been sick and tired. When I became sick and tired of being sick and tired, I finally surrendered and came to the Gamblers Anonymous Program. Now I realize that I have been helped all along by a Higher Power; it was this Power, indeed, that allowed me to live so that I could eventually find a new way of life.
Have I found in the GA Program a measure of serenity previously unknown to me?
Today I Pray
May I realize that my higher Power has not suddenly come into my life like a stranger opening a door when I knocked. The Power has been there all along, if I will just remember how many brushes with disaster I have survived by a fraction of time or distance. Now that I have come to know my Higher Power better, I realize that I must have been saved for something – perhaps for helping others like me.
Today I Will Remember
I am grateful to be alive and recovering.
