Faith

Being loved and accepted in the rooms has changed my feelings of being restless, irritable and discontent to a place where I feel happy, joyous and free. Today the person I have come to understand and love is me – I’m okay, I’m doing the very best I can, and I work to live a life of recovery every day, every minute. When my butt hits the floor, when my energy escapes me, when doubt eats away at my resolve – it is then that I reach out to my Higher Power in prayer, and my next action is to get to the rooms and hear the readings which usually begin “Rarely have we seen a person fail who has thoroughly followed our path. . .”  My serenity gets restored, my faith gets renewed, and my will to live a sober life is revived.  Love is the reward for practicing a life of recovery.

    That are as many kinds of meetings as there are makers.

    I’m speaking of meeting God as I understand him.

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

  2. Top of the morning family,
    – Am I allowing self to have his way
    – Am I allowing Divine Mercy to have His way
    Today, I have a chance to treat others as God treats me.
    It’s a good day to see, feel, hear, and smell what has power of over me day.

    What great words you wrote today. Thank you SMB. This is beautiful. It is true meetings always help, even if I get restless and impatient. Then I am more aware as my character defects jump put at me. So my sponsor says, love patience , and tolerance. Yea!
