March 27, 2015 – Readings in Recovery: Step by Step

Step by Step
Friday, March 27, 2015
Today, if I am afraid, anxious, worried and uncertain about anything, I can draw strength from the mercy and blessing of my Higher Power that guided me through the darkness and fear of alcoholism to face the challenges before me now. If I believe that drinking was the darkest chapter of my life but that I survived with the strength of a Higher Power, I must have faith that the same strength can lead me through a lesser turmoil. The Second Step of coming to believe in a Higher Power is refuge from any storm I am weathering now, and the Third Step of yielding to a greater power calms any fears or doubts with faith. Today, I can draw strength and hope from the yesterday when I had my last drink to believe that, with faith and strength in the power that got me through those days, I can get through anything less – but only with unconditional faith and by seeking His will over mine. And our common journey continues. Step by step. – Chris M., 2015
