THE LAST PROMISE
We will suddenly realize that God is doing for us
what we could not do for ourselves.
ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, p. 84
The last Promise in the Big Book came true for me
on the very first day of sobriety. God kept me sober
that day, and on every other day I allowed Him to
operate in my life. He gives me the strength, courage
and guidance to meet my responsibilities in life so
that I am then able to reach out and help others stay
sober and grow. He manifests within me, making me a
channel of His word, thought and deed. He works with
my inner self, while I produce in the outer world, for
He will not do for me what I can do for myself. I must
be willing to do His work, so that He can function
through me successfully.

loved the reading, but the part that bothered me is the experience shared of it being the last promise in the BB. there are many, many promises int he BB, they just arent noted as being promises.
i love this one:
And we have ceased fighting anything or anyone - even alcohol. For by this time sanity will have returned.
no longer insane, just craaaaazy!!!
