God Will Not Desert Us

.

“This, I think, is because

we are so aware that God

will not desert us when

the chips are down, indeed,

He did not when

we were drinking.

And so it should be with

the remainder of life.”

.

As Bill Sees It       p 221

.

God did not get lost,

I did.

The Devil buried my soul under a huge pile

of guilt, shame and remorse.

Thanks to the program of Alcoholics Anonymous,

I learned the truth about my disease and what it did

to want me to isolate, push away anyone who loved me

and to kill myself.

Today, as long as I allow the God of my understanding

to lead me, I know that I will have a life

that is happy, joyous and free.

Recovery is knowing that God will not desert us.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

Our Own Defects

.

“A clear light seems

to fall upon us all –

– when we open our eyes.

Since our blindness is

caused by our own defects,

we must first deeply realize

what they are.”

.

As Bill Sees It   p  11

 

.

You correction of that character defect

may not be to the liking of your mother-in-law,

however, for yourself, the change may be the light

that will guide you to a new life that is happy,

joyous and free.

Be willing, put a name on that defect,

and ask your Higher Power how you may best

become the person you and He want you to be.

Recovery is to realize what our defects are.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.
