Once We Take Step Three

Once we compulsive eaters truly take the Third Step, we cannot fail to recover. ~ Overeaters Anonymous. The Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions of Overeaters Anonymous, Second Edition. Overeaters Anonymous, Inc.. Kindle Edition.

A bold statement, this one.
Just “truly take” Step Three
and we’re in? Really? After lifetimes
struggling for Recovery?
“Just” make a decision
to turn our will and our lives
over to the care of God
as we understand Him?
All we must do is decide?
We don’t even have to manage
the transfer? We don’t!
God doesn’t demand perfection,
but he needs an authentic decision…
And from that, the legitimate choice
and trusting God, it really happens!
We have the actual magic to cede control
to He Who Can!
