The Serenity Prayer

A Day at a Time
Sunday, Sept. 14, 2014

Reflection for the Day
Until we came to The Program, our lives had been spent running away from pain and problems. Escape by way of alcohol or other chemicals was always our temporary solution. Then we started going to meetings. We looked and listened, often with amazement. Everywhere around us, we saw failure and misery transformed by humility into priceless assets. To those who’ve made progress in The Program, humility is simply a clear recognition of what and who we really are – followed by a sincere attempt to become what we could be.

Is The Program showing me what I could be?

Today I Pray
I pray for humility, which is another word for perspective, a level look at the real me and where I stand in relation to God and other people. May I be grateful to humility; it is the processing plant through which my raw hurts and ragged delusions are refined into new courage and sensitivities.

Today I Will Remember
Humility restores my “sight.”
