Fearing God's Will
It is so easy to help and guide our brothers and sisters in the fellowship when they are in pain. "Trust your Higher Power; pray to know His will" are my words of wisdom. But what happens when the pain belongs to me? It is not always easy to follow my own advice.
Life On Life's Terms
The Big Book gives us an abundance of promises that come true if we work for them. One thing, though, no one can promise is a life without any problems. The hardest part of sobriety can be living life on life's terms.
Step Ten and a Daily Inventory
The personal inventory we make each evening helps us maintain our sobriety and spiritual connection to a Higher Power. It is not always about good and bad but what could we have done better or different in words and actions for the good of all.
Being Good Enough
The feelings of not being good enough or feeling less than do not disappear that quickly. They are deep rooted defects that made us drink or use. Removing these feelings take time, patience, and the ability to acknowledge them.
Amends and Recovery
We are in recovery and yet we are still human. Every now and then we revert back to old behaviors. Are we focusing on recovery or just letting life happen?
Our Primary Purpose
Responsibility and purpose...two important elements to maintain sobriety. Are we willing to give back to everyone in need or do we only help those within our comfort zone?
You Have to Listen
When we have a problem that doesn't want to go away, we try to take action and then pray for a solution. Sometimes we have to listen to the world around us to find the answer to our prayers.
This is an incredibly powerful story about the thread that runs through every day of our recovery. The thread is knowing God's will for us and the power to carry it out as well as listening to God when He speaks to us.
Forgiveness - Gifting Ourselves
There are certain articles to me that bear republishing for personal reasons. This is one of them. Forgiveness is the gift we give ourselves but why is it so difficult? We have to learn to "practice" forgiveness as we do with any other principle.
Is There Hope for Everyone?
Hope doesn't just happen. Hope is not a wish for something as much as it is taking action because you know there is something better out there. When did you discover hope for yourself?
