REACH THE UNREACHABLE

"Afterward, we found ourselves accepting many things which then seemed entirely out of reach." Alcoholics Anonymous, page 47

"The Kingdom of Heaven is like a mustard seed planted in a field. It is the smallest of all seeds, but it ... grows into a tree where birds can come and find shelter in its branches." Matthew 13: 31-32

For what it's worth: Alcoholism reduced me to waste, so how could I ever be anything of value? And, since God was against me, there would be no miracles. That is what I believed when I started in Alcoholics Anonymous. It was confirmed when I heard the Twelve Steps; I could never do most of them. So, for me, sobriety and anything of value was unreachable. In desperation, I began doing what Alcoholics Anonymous people did to stay sober. That was the key. Gradually, doors opened that had been locked. I started listening to the “God stuff”. I even saw God at work in my life, so I stopped fighting Him. And, low and behold, I started progressing in ways I thought impossible. God, in His loving mercy, and working through Alcoholics Anonymous, planted in this once worthless drunk a small seed of hope that I might be able to reach what I believed unreachable. Someday, I might truly believe I am something of value to God and Alcoholics Anonymous.

God bless you.
Joe W.
