Wisdom for Today
The twelve-step program is a whole lot more than simply learning not to drink or use drugs. It is a way of living life. If all that was involved were abstinence, it would only require one step – stop using. Before coming into the program, many of us tried that program. Most of us quit drinking and using drugs many times only to return to our old ways once again. The program is more like walking up a down escalator. We have to keep moving at a pace faster than our disease if we are ever going to reach the top. Going to meetings, talking with sponsors, working the steps, and faith all help us to make it to the top – a stable, secure recovery. Am I working a program that will get me to the top?
Meditations for the Heart
Obedience is a concept that many of us struggle with. We want to make the rules or break the rules. The program has no rules, only suggestions. However, in my recovery I have learned that being obedient to the will of my “Higher Power” is the easier way. While it is true that I can freely chose to do what I want, when I do what God wants I find that life is actually easier. I am
not always trying to cover up, hide, or lie about what I have done. When I walk along the path that God leads me I am safe, I am secure. Am I willing to be obedient?
Petitions to my Higher Power
God,

Today let me walk along the path that you lead me on. Should I stray away, call me back. Grant me the courage I need to be obedient and follow your will for me.

Amen
