The Better Concept

.

“I can only report

that I have experimented

with both concepts

and that, in my case,

the God concept has

proved to be a better basis

for living than the

man-centered one.”

.

As Bill Sees It     p 247

.

As a drunk I was God.

Thanks to A. A. , the literature, the fellowship,

today I know that there is a God, and it is not me.

Today, when things start to go wrong, I can usually

reflect and see that I was trying to play God again

and the only thing I was doing was to make God laugh.

Today is not a laughing matter, Let Go and Let God.

Recovery is using the God concept as a better basis for living.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

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.
