A Day At A Time

Reflection For The Day

I don’t believe that The Program and Twelve Steps work because I read it in a book, or because I hear other people say so.  I believe it because I see other people recovering and because I know that I, too, am recovering.  No longer do I believe that I am “helpless and hopeless.”  When I see the change in other people and in myself, I know that The Program works.  When a television reporter once asked the philosopher Jung if he believed in God, Jung replied slowly, “I don’t believe — I know”  Do I know that The Program works?

Today I Pray

Show me the happy endings, the mended lives, the reconstituted selves, the rebuilt bridges, so I will not have to accept on faith the fact that The Program works.  May I see it working — for others and for me.  May I be grateful for the documented reality of The Program’s success.  May this certainty help me find the faith I need to follow the Twelve Steps.

Today I Will Remember

The Program works.
