A Power Greater than Ourselves

Do I have problems accepting that there is a Power or Powers greater than myself?

I have in the past, but I’m ready to surrender now.

What are some things that are more powerful than I am?

God, The laws of nature, a lot of stuff, man. The government, the army, really rich people, my addiction…

Can a Power greater than myself help me stay clean? How?

It gives me something to feel a part of and remind me of my place in the world – a small particle in a larger organism.

Can a Power greater than I am help me recover? How?

By loving and treating me with the kindness it does everything else.

What evidence do I have that a Higher Power is working in my life?

My recovery, and the gentle lessons I keep learning –  I’ve had so many chances to get this life thing right.

What are the characteristics my HIgher Power does not have?

Hatred and exclusion.

What are the characteristics my Higher Power has?

Love, gentleness, curiousity, general benevolence and good will.
