I have found a peace within from working Step Three. Making a decision to turn my will and my life over to the care of God.  That Step scared me. I thought “What will happen to me if I just quit struggling?”   I mentally and spiritually worked Step Three and developed a faith I had never experienced. Peace came when I “gave up.” Now I know it was not just giving up. It was having trust and faith in a power greater than me.  I somehow found the strength to sit still long enough for God to catch up with me. To know that He will always be there. That there is a plan for my life and that I am right where I am supposed to be.  I found God, and I found a faith in Him and in the Program of Alcoholics Anonymous.  I know today that whatever happens – it is the will of God.  I have learned to allow myself the faith of stepping back and letting life unfold not as I will.  Knowing God is embracing a peace unlike any I have ever known.

  1. His name is Dan and he’s from Texas and he had just completed his fifth step nearing the end of a three month treatment program.
    There was something surreal about him and Dr. Smith director of our treatment program recognized it and declared he didn’t want to disturb the mood.

    I also experienced this “pink cloud” and they in AA recognized it and explained it to me along with the coming reality of having to come back to earth.
    They also explained that I could have a crash landing or a smooth landing depending on my decision to let them help me.
    I had a smooth landing.
    I treasure the spiritual experience.

  2. Top of the afternoon family,
    Step 3 allows one to slightly so open the door to His sunlight of the spirit.
    – Darkness is the absence of light……..
    Step 1. There be a power trying to kill me.
    Step 2. There be a power trying to love me.
    Step 3. Which one do I desire.

    LIke the “whatever”: as the younger gen pop says so much of:
    I’m understanding today, It’s His love / Mercy that graces me with power, peace, contentment, and joy to say “Whatever”.
    When I positively believe that Divine Mercy will arrive in a certain direction. He always surprises me in a direction I never thought of.
    Saint Peter thought a ghost was approaching over the turbulent seas, but nope, nada, nichts, nien, Frankenstein…….

    It’s a good day to have a whatever day.
