now and then,
we could gladly
make right choices
hold-out, or conflict,
then we had our
first view of what
under God’s will
could be like.”
As Bill Sees It p124
As Bill explains it, we entered into A.A. with no choices,
alcohol ruled our lives, made our choices.
Then we were offered the Steps that were suggested
and the “Must” make choices were the beginning to a new freedom.
Then, when we surrendered a little more, we began to think
about the consequences of our choices.
The “Ought to” make a better choice put us directly
on the pathway to a new freedom and a new happiness.
Then we gladly began to chose to do the next right thing
and we knew the perfect freedom of doing God’s will.
Recovery is to make the right choices without rebellion.
Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.
