Turning It Over

When I contemplate my recovery I can see where the Steps have been a guiding force, and the power of the Program, have both been an influencing factor in my life.  My surrender to my Higher Power took me to a place that’s been called a “leap of faith.”  I wanted sobriety and recovery and if this leap of faith helped others to achieve that goal, then there was a possibility that I too might also be given the grace of faith in a Higher Power.  I certainly had no place to go, and I desperately wanted what I saw others had – peace, acceptance, faith, and hope.  There really was no choice in the matter, God had led me to the right path. Today I work with the God of my understanding in the hope of achieving recovery from the deadly disease of alcoholism and all of it’s insanity and chaos. Today, I have found my faith. I have found my hope in the rooms of A.A., and I have found my power in the surrender of my will to God.  I pray to remain open and willing, at all times, and in all ways.

  1. Do Not Be Discouraged!

    Says so in the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous.
    Do you know how often God offers us courage?
    Someone counted it up and the admonition fear not or do not fear is recorded 365 times in the Holy Bible.
    That’s one for each day of the year as anyone can plainly see.
    In receiving this Gift we receive courage.
    That’s one for each day of the year.

    I’m Harry, grateful alcoholic and devoted twelve stepper.

  2. Turning over whatever I have no control over leaves.me free to concentrate on what I have control over. Serenity prayer in action.

  3. Top of the morning family,
    How often I forget, every time I turn it over/lay it down to God, He always takes care of my stressed situation in a way that exceeds my expectations…every single time.
    Self lacks the power/abilities to handle life’s challenges. Simply, I must ask and if it’s in His will for me: it’s granted. Divine Mercy freely provides what I need – the hope of endurance / encouragement.
    Give us this day, our daily manna.
    Today, I have a chance to treat others as Divine Mercy treats me.
    It’s a good day to have a good day.
