As alcoholics, we often find ourselves fighting a daily battle to stay sober. It can be tough to stay on track, especially when life throws us curveballs.
But by taking time each day for reflection, we can arm ourselves with the tools we need to stay strong and focused.
Today’s Daily Reflection is all about gratitude. So take a moment to think about all the good things in your life, and be thankful for them. It may not seem like much, but it can make all the difference.

It is plain that a life which includes deep resentment leads only to futility and unhappiness. . . . But with the alcoholic, whose hope is the maintenance and growth of a spiritual experience, this business of resentment is infinitely grave.ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, p. 66
If you don’t know God, then peace can be a distant memory.
If there is no one who has control over your life and destiny–no higher power to trust in or turn to for guidance -the outcomes are inevitable: confusion; depression; anxiety all become part of everyday living without any sense that things will get better because they never do!
The Bible says that “God is not the author of confusion, but of peace.” We want to be clear about this—we are talking about God here, not just any old somebody or something else.
If you know God through Jesus Christ and His Holy Spirit living in your life today, then you can find true peace with Him now!
You don’t have to live a life full of questions wondering what’s going on anymore because He has revealed Himself to us.
And if we do our part by following his commandments and trusting him for salvation through faith alone, then He will give us eternal life as well.
