The first three Steps are all about surrender. Step One – I had to admit my powerlessness over alcohol. Step Two says I need to find and believe in a power greater than myself – God appears to be that power. And then Step Three asks that I make a decision to turn my will and life over to the care of this Higher Power. I’ve heard it expressed thusly: I have a problem, I believe God can help, I think I’ll let Him. In other words, I surrender. I surrender to the idea that I have a disease, and it’s name is alcoholism. I surrender to a power who is greater than me, and greater than my disease. I surrender to the idea that the Program works for whose who work it. I surrender to the notion that my life, thus far, has been based on mistruths and misguided trust in others. I surrender to the Twelve Steps as a program of recovery. I surrender to a faith in God, daily. And I surrender to the idea that I am right where I am supposed to be – in the rooms of A.A., and in the loving, kind hands of God, and you my trudgers, here at This24!! Happy Easter to those who celebrate….and to those who don’t-may you have an amazing day πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—

Surrendering to another sober day!!
