Daily Recovery Readings for November 12, 2017:
Ask Him in your morning meditation what you can do each day for the man who is still sick.
~ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, p. 164
For many years I pondered over God’s will for me, believing that perhaps a great destiny had been ordained for my life. After all, having been born into a specific faith, hadn’t I been told early that I was “chosen”? It finally occurred to me, as I considered the above passage, that God’s will for me was simply that I practice Step Twelve on a daily basis. Furthermore, I realized I should do this to the best of my ability. I soon learned that the practice aids me in keeping my life in the context of the day at hand.

Big Book Quote
We have learned that whatever the human frailties of various faiths may be, those faiths have given purpose and direction to millions. People of faith have a logical idea of what life is all about.

Keep It Simple
It may be those who do most, dream most.—Stephen Leacock
Daydreaming gives us hope. It makes our world bigger. Daydreaming can be part of doing Step Eleven. As we meditate, we daydream. Through our daydreaming, we get to know ourselves, our spirit, and our Higher Power. What special work can we do? Our dreams can tell us.
There is time to work and time to dream. Daydreaming helps us find the work our Higher Power wants us to do.
Prayer for the Day:
Higher Power, please speak to me through my daydreams.
Action for the Day:
I’ll set aside time to daydream. I will look into a candle flame, at picture, or out a window, and let my mind wander.

Overloading people with a pile of facts is a distraction rather than a benefit today. Naturally, everyone craves credible information that empowers them to make the smartest decisions. But you can bury the truth quickly with a truckload of superfluous data. Instead of impeding progress by pulling everyone’s eyes off the main event, encourage each person to create their own perspective now. Sometimes supporting someone means getting out of their way.
