Promise #12




“We will suddenly realize

that God is doing for us

what we could not do

for ourselves.”


Big Book,  p. 84



Better know as the Ninth Step promises,

it is understood that the sooner one works the steps,

honestly and to the best of their abilities,

the sooner the promises begin to come true.

When one realizes that the obsession and compulsion

to drink has been removed it is the beginning of sober life

that relies on a faith,  to trust that a Higher Power

who could relieve our alcoholism could and would,

if He were sought,

do many more things in our lives.

That by not drinking we will be restored to sane thinking

and He will show us a serene and peaceful way of living.

Today, let go and let God.

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.
