KEEP IT SIMPLE #essentialsofrecovery

Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.

~ Step Two from Alcoholics Anonymous ~

The Second Step directs us to believe there is hope for us. It may take time to believe this. Many of us had given up hope. But look around. Hope fills our meeting rooms. We are surrounded by miracles. This Power greater than ourselves has healed many. Listen as others tell their stories. They speak of how powerful this Power is.

At times, we will not want to believe. This is normal. But in recovery, “coming to believe” means opening ourselves up to healing power found in the program.

Prayer for the Day

Higher Power, allow me to believe. Help me stay open to recovery.

Action for the Day

I will list three examples of my past insanity. I will share these examples with my group, sponsor, a program friend, or with my Higher Power. I will remember that I’m a miracle.
