When many hundreds of people are able to say that the consciousness of the Presence of God is today the most important fact of their lives, they present a powerful reason why one should have faith. ~ A.A. World Services Inc. Alcoholics Anonymous, 4th Edition. A.A. World Services, Inc.. Kindle Edition.
The Big Book also says, “All men of faith have courage.”
While we’re free to define our own higher power,
and to some extent our relationship with the power,
it seems our surrender in Step Three and later steps
requires a confidence in that Power…
confidence commonly known as faith.
Are not all Recovery folks people of faith?
We are like trapeze artists depending
on the knowledge and skill of another
to catch us when, powerless, we surrender…
let go and trust the Power to have us.
And it works!
