Parts of our story we tell to someone who will understand, yet be unaffected. I ask for divine guidance before choosing the man or woman whom I take into my confidence. –Daily Reflections | More…

With the Creator in our lives, we are everything.
Without the Creator, we are nothing.

When the Creator is in our life, suddenly the impossible becomes possible.
The extraordinary becomes ordinary.

Things we thought could never happen start to happen.
Talents we never knew we had, start to blossom.

Resources appear. Help arrives to give us guidance and direction.
We become happy. We have peace of mind and confidence. –Elders Meditations | More…

Confidence can be described as a belief in one’s ability to succeed.

God, this is hard. Today, allow me to be a Warrior. Let me be strong. Let Your voice be clear to me. Let me hear Your guidance. My goal today is to serve You, to develop myself to be the kind of Indian person that You would have me be. To Walk the Red Road must sometimes be walked alone. –Elders Meditations | More…

We come to A.A. to get a life, not for A.A. to be our life. After changing jobs a few times and settling into a more balanced work/recovery life, I realized what the answer was. The key to feeling the same sense of comfort and safety outside of A.A. was to apply the principles of the program in all of my affairs. And chief among these is to be of service.

I now know that I was given a life in A.A. so that I can have a meaningful life outside of A.A. as well. –Wisdom Of The Rooms | More…
