Third Step Prayer

150 150 Mark S

God, I offer myself to Thee- To build with me and to do with me as Thou wilt. Relieve me of the bondage of self, that I may better do Thy will. Take away my difficulties, that victory over them may bear witness to those I would help of Thy Power, Thy Love, and Thy Way of life. May I do Thy will always!

This prayer shows me how my higher power can remove my difficulties.  They are not magically removed in an instant, but rather they are removed through actions that can be seen.  Again, faith without works is dead is the AA mantra.  There is work to be done here.  But what is the motivation for removing difficulties, what is the pay off?  It is for the benefit of others, you see I’m trying to be freed from the bondage of self.

I am called to be a good example to give hope to others who face the difficulties too. I’m not sure I’m “all in” on this one.

When Bad Things Happen

150 150 Mark S

I have come to accept that when bad things happen, they have no meaning while they are happening. I believe it is my job to give them meaning, sometimes to make a decision to impose that meaning.

I want to stop asking the question, “Why did this happen?”. But rather I want to move toward the question, “Now that this has happened, what am I going to do about it?”
So now I know I want to make something good out of this terrible situation. I feel called to tell the story and find healing, but this can’t be the end, healing of myself, I feel that the story should be one of hope so that healing can extend outside of myself. 

So my story will be one of life, new birth, reconciliation, and not one of death and dispair; a place that is easily fallen into. That is why I need recovery people, so that when the burden is to much, you can help with the load.
