Thanks to Step One, I finally saw myself as powerless over other people, places, and things. This was revelation, they told me in the rooms of recovery, and they encouraged me to accept the evidence of my powerlessness as actual fact.
I “came to” and began to gather evidence in Step Two that my job was simply to ask. As I did, I garnered more proof that God is able and eager to help me. I was actually getting actual help that actually helped!
This accumulation of evidence increased my ability to trust, which made Step Three easier for me. I began to (to at least try) tapping into God’s Power rather than my own. The results (not always immediate) became obvious. It was so OBVIOUSLY better when I let God manage things. Now I know that “letting go and letting God” is always preferable to trying to manage things by my “self.”
What think you about the 1-2-3, 1-2-3, 1-2-3 of the Recovery Waltz?!? Chime in if you care to share. FYI, this image was posted on Twitter.
