“Much to our relief,
we did not need to consider
another’s conception of God.
Our own conception,
was sufficient to make
the approach and to effect
a contact with Him.”
Big Book, p. 46
Every soul that enters the rooms of A.A.
comes in with a different concept of God that ranges from
there is no God to a place where the Pope can do no wrong.
The only concept required to begin a sober life is to
know that there is a God and it is not you.
Be it Bill W.’s burning bush or William James in
The Varieties of Religious Experience,
everyone who stays sober eventually agrees that
they are no longer in control and accepting
life on God’s terms is the easier softer way.
Today, do not be afraid of the concept,
surrender and let God find you.
Recovery is one day at a time.
Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.
ME and the Boss
And, if no one has told you yet today,
God loves you and so do we.
