The Serenity Prayer

Step by Step

Thursday, Sept. 4, 2014

Today, I will try to remember gratitude and its importance in my recovery. I can be grateful that the AA lifeline was tossed to me when I needed it, grateful for the peers in the Program who stood with me and picked me up when I stumbled and fell, grateful that the 12 Steps have kept me clean and sober the last 24 Hours and, maybe most importantly, grateful that whatever problems I have even in sobriety are nowhere near as bad as they were in my drinking days. In feeling with sincerity a gratitude that my life in sobriety is far better than it was in my drinking, I can hope to develop the humility that is required to make progress in my sobriety – humility being my total surrender to my Higher Power and seeking His will for my life, not mine. Today, I measure my sense of gratitude with the goal to bolster it for the sake of progress. And our common journey continues. Step by step. – Chris M., 2014
