Alcoholics Anonymous can not
turn the backward brain around,
what AA can do is to give one
the tools to learn a new way
God, as I understand Him, for me,
is the most important tool in my tool kit.
Without a strong spiritual foundation
the rest of my program would be a house
built of cards.
When I review the ninth step promises (BB p. 54)
the last promise, “that God is doing for us
what we could not do for ourselves”,
has come true for me.
This promise is proof that “I” will get drunk again
and that “We”, God and the fellowship of AA,
will keep me sober.
