April 1, 2015 – Readings in Recovery: Step by Step

Step by Step

Wednesday, April 1, 2015

Today: Faith in the Program and my Higher Power to work by offering to someone else what I think I need or want for myself. Today, I will hand over to my Higher Power all that is selfish and which impedes or blocks my progress, my growth, and extend a hand of service to someone in need. Borrowing from Mother Teresa, if I grieve, I will find someone who needs consoling; if I am hungry, I will find someone to feed; if I am thirsty, I will quench another’s thirst; and, if I am cold, I will give warmth to someone else. If someone seeking release from active alcoholism calls on me, I will not turn him away because I am too busy and instead offer what I have – hope, promise and rebirth in a Program that has been passed on to me through grace. Today, I will accept that I can keep what I have only by sharing it with someone else. And our common journey continues. Step by step. – Chris M., 2015
