BRC Alumni Stories: Whose hands are you in?

I must admit that when I took the third step prayer I had some reservations. What would my life look like if I stopped trying to run the show? I couldn’t imagine being too happy or content following the dictates of someone else. Just what am I signing up for here?

What is to become of me?

How can I trust that which I do not know?

What will my life look like?

Even though these were my thoughts, I was sure that anything would be better than my current reality created by my self will. I kept an open mind, and continued to work the rest of the steps.

Now I don’t know much, but I do know that today, 5 years later, I wouldn’t trade my life for anything in the world. I like results. And my experience is that when I put my life in Gods hands, the results are far better than anything I ever accomplished with me behind the wheel on this road of life.

As my mentor use to say, “I think I’ll just keep doing what I’m doing”.
