AS BILL SEES IT #essentialsofrecovery


~ Page 114 ~

No Personal Power

“At first, the remedy for my personal difficulties seemed so obvious that I could not imagine any alcoholic turning the proposition down were it properly presented to him. Believing so firmly that Christ can do anything, I had the unconscious conceit to suppose that He would do everything through me−right then and in the manner I chose. After six long months, I had to admit that not a soul had surely laid hold of the Master−not excepting myself.

“This brought me to the good healthy realization that there were plenty of situations left in the world over which had no personal power−that if I was so ready to admit that to be the case with alcohol, so I must make the same admission with respect to much else. I would have to be still and know that He, not I, was God.”
