Daily Reflections for 1/24/2013
There is action and more action. "Faith without works is dead" . . . To be helpful is our only aim.
ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, pp. 88-89
I understand that service is a vital part of recovery but I often wonder, "What can I do?" Simply start with what I have today! I look around to see where there is a need. Are the ashtrays full? Do I have hands and feet to empty them? Suddenly I'm involved! The best speaker may make the worst coffee; the member who's best with newcomers may be unable to read; the one willing to clean up may make a mess of the bank account -- yet every one of these people and jobs is essential to an active group. The miracle of service is this: when I use what I have, I find there is more available to me than I realized before.

I have to stop trying to be so damn perfect and accept the fact that I am not going to be perfect. It's impossible. I put such high expectations on myself that of course I'm destined to fail. High expectations. Well, I can't think my way out of them, so I guess I gotta give them to God, right? In (or in this case, out) they go!

When we open our eyes to help (unlike we could do when drinking) we see a whole new world in need. One that was there all along but we were to selfish to see it.

I am responsible. When anyone, anywhere, reaches out for help, I want the hand of A.A. always to be there. And for that: I am responsible.
