I’m sure you have your own methods for staying sober. But I think my favorite technique is to keep a journal of my thoughts and reflections on the day each evening, before bed.
This way I can revisit what happened with fresh eyes and see if things might have gone differently if I had acted differently. The last thing we need is another relapse!
So let’s take a look back at today: What would happen if you drank? What do you want to achieve in sobriety? Who do you want to become in sobriety? And how does this make you feel about drinking again tomorrow night?
Daily Reflections July 3
Being still inexperienced and having just made conscious contact with God, it is not probable that we are going to be inspired at all times.ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, p. 87
Sometimes it’s hard to be brave enough to ask for help, but I know that if I am going to make my life work out how God wants me too then there are times when all we need is a little guidance.
That isn’t always easy though and sometimes the easiest thing can feel like being on your own.
But now more than ever before, everything has been pointing in one direction which is where He needs me so badly right now!
Sometimes it’s tough not knowing what steps you should take next or even whether another plan would work better; however lately every step seems clearer as well as easier because of His guiding hand pushing us forward towards our goal!
I am convinced that to find God’s direction for your life, you must trust Him and act as if He has given it.
Even though we cannot see His plan clearly in the moment, when we turn our lives over to Him with a humble heart, He promises never to leave us or forsake us.
