Acceptance of Dependence on a Higher Power

AA Thought for the Day (courtesy AAOnline.net)

We couldn't lick alcohol with our own remaining resources and so we accepted the fact that dependence upon a higher power (if only our AA group) could do this hitherto impossible job. The moment we were able to fully accept these facts, our release from the alcohol compulsion had begun.

Thought to Ponder . . .

Many of our fears are tissue paper thin, and a single courageous step would carry us clear through them.
