the Spirit Within

I need power each day, because I get weary. But with AA as my structure and God as my source of strength, I can face life without taking a drink.

I don't have to stare out my window in total despair any more. The ocean and the sun and the trees and all the fantastic beauty that God has created have finally become very real to me.

I crave and need the presence of nature. But I must also bear in mind that it is the spirit within me, which comes from God, that is going to be the healing force. I can turn to it wherever I am.

Thought to Ponder . . .

The power within me is far greater than any fear before me.
