Your Higher Power
Today’s Reminder: Your Higher Power
“I have held many things in my hands, and I have lost them all; but whatever I have placed in God’s hands, that I still possess.”
~ Martin Luther ~
Courage to Change Series: Trusting a Higher Power
I find myself taking Step Three over and over again. Unfortunately, I often wait until a problem starts to overwhelm me before I finally give in and turn it over to my Higher Power. Nevertheless, today I am striving to place my entire will and life in my Higher Power’s hands with the willingness to accept His or Her will for me, no matter what. The awareness I have gained in Al-Anon lets me know that my way has seldom worked in the past. It’s only when I let go and trust the inner voice that quietly nudges me in the direction of my Higher Power’s choosing that my life becomes fulfilling.
3 C’s of Al-Anon
- We didn’t CAUSE it
- We can’t CONTROL it
- We can’t CURE it
AND WE WON’T CONTRIBUTE TO IT TODAY
***Next Family Afterward Meeting will take place, June 22nd @ 7 p.m. CST via Zoom***
Questions to Consider This Week
- Is there an area of my life that I treat as though it were too important to turn over to my Higher Power?
- Are my efforts to control that area making my life better and more manageable? Or are these efforts causing more confusion rather than harmony in my circumstances?
- Will I become willing just for this week to seek wise counsel from my Higher Power before taking action? The Big Book of AA tells us to pause when agitated or doubtful. I can practice this principle in relationship with anything or anyone at any time.
- The gentle nudging in my spirit that I often ignore is called God given intuition. It is a gift and can be harnessed through seeking a spiritual path to create a life of abundance and peace for me. Is that what I desire above attempting to control my life and the lives of those around me?
