Sept. 9, 2015 – Readings in Recovery: Step by Step

Step by Step

Wednesday, Sept. 9, 2015

Today, accept that I need a Higher Power to progress toward a quality sobriety. To those in the Program who might say a Higher Power is a myth or an entity that does not exist, look back on own experience as a drinking alcoholic when we conducted ourselves without regard to the needs or feelings of others, when we made decisions based only on our wants. I didn’t do such a great job running my life on my own, and it was only when I sought and found a power stronger and wiser than myself that I began my journey of spiritual awakening. And the Higher Power that the Program says we all need is not necessarily the God of organized religion or even a god. That Higher Power can be nothing more simple than a development of a moral conscience that dictates how we manage our lives and choices to involve others. Today, I ask if I need a Higher Power. My answer: Yes. And our common journey continues. Step by step. – Chris M., 2015
