Accepting The Plan

When I hear the stories of others in AA I am reminded of the many blessings that I have received since I walked through the doors.  I used to pray for “things,” always thinking that I was short-changed in some way. Now I pray for the well-being of others, and for courage, strength, and faith in God’s plan for me. Faith in the Program, and faith in myself, that I might be of service to others.  I’ve heard some shocking stories, but what I’ve heard most is stories of recovery and sobriety.  I’ve also learned that no matter what my life was like before, what counts is what I do with my life now.  I have a true sense of inner peace.  I accept life on life’s terms and know that the solutions I seek can be found in the Twelve Steps of the Program.  Step One tells me I have a problem, Step Two says that there is a Power greater than my problem, and Step Three encourages me to just Let Go and Let God.  All else will be as it is supposed to be.

  1. Thank the Lord for this day and for all that is in it.
    My times are in His hand.
    My soul rests with Him, my Anamchara.

    This pretty much sums it up concerning what everyone learns about alcoholism when they come to AA.
    AA also offers the solution.
    But what about the ism concerning other obsessive attachments?
    Anyone with a bit, a wee bit of honesty, open-mindedness and willingness will know when this is occurring in their lives.
    Sadly I lacked that for many years.

    Ah! The solution, the glorious solution:

    Why is this resurrection story, this salvation story, this recovery story so attractive to us as well as many billions?
    It appeals to us at our very deepest level.
