How weird is this? Love my higher power. I read this in a meeting lastnight in hopes to help another alcoholic who was feeling pain from the past. Not sure if it helped but I know it helped me to find this in the book and apply this to my life. pg. 124 post by Dallas.
Today's "Walk in Dry Places" meditation is listed below: I thank God for the tools I have today, to help me reach my higher power and appreciate even the hardest times. So as long as I do not pick up that first drink today.
"Why Do Bad Things Happen?"
Understanding Life. No one has been able to explain why pain and misfortune must be part of the human condition. Bad things can and do happen to everybody, and sometimes there's no way to explain it.
Even in sobritey, AA membrs have misfortunes-times when it appears that God is hiding. We even hear members share such experiences at meetings.
Many of us have found ways to use misfortunes constructively, however, by seeing how the program helps us deal with it. In some cases-but not all-we even learn that a misfortune was a disquised blessing.
Most important, by using the program, we are eliminating the drinking in our lives. That alone makes our immediate world a much better place for everyone.
