I haven’t been posting quite as much lately because I’m down under a terrible migraine for the last 5 days. It’s beating me but I’m not defeated entirely.
I am beginning to pray for healing. Up until now I thought this was selfish but I am realizing it’s not. There are so many people in my life affected by my constant pain and inabilities that I’m going to be praying for a miracle of healing. God is GREAT and CAN perform miracles.
I loved today’s reading and am sharing it.
It explains exactly why I wasn’t comfortable standing taking praise at my Birthday celebration. ALL things through God are possible. I CAN heal through HIM and His grace.

You are reading from the book Twenty Four Hours a Day Hardcover (24 Hours)
In A.A. we must surrender, give up, admit that we’re helpless. We surrender our lives to God and ask Him for help. When He knows that we’re ready, He gives us by His grace the free gift of sobriety. And we can’t take any credit for having stopped drinking, because we didn’t do it by our own willpower. There’s no place for pride or boasting. We can only be grateful to God for doing for us what we could never do for ourselves. Do I believe that God has made me a free gift of the strength to stay sober?
Meditation for the Day
I must work for God, with God, and through God’s help. By helping to bring about a true fellowship of human beings, I am working for God. I am also working with God because this is the way God works, and He is with me when I am doing such work. I cannot do good work, however, without God’s help. In the final analysis, it is through the grace of God that any real change in human personality takes place. I have to rely on God’s power, and anything I accomplish is through His help.
Prayer for the Day
I pray that I may work for God and with God. I pray that I may be used to change human personalities through God’s help.
