KEEP IT SIMPLE #essentialsofrecovery



We must believe the things we teach our children.

~ Woodrow Wilson ~

It may be easy to say the words and phrases we’ve heard without really meaning them. Someone says something at a meeting that sounds good. Our counselor has a favorite saying. We may say these words, but are we taking the time to ask the question, Do I believe what I’m saying?

Step Two speaks of, “Came to believe….” By really believing in the Twelve Steps, we let them become part of us. The more we believe in the Steps the more we turn our lives over to them. Hopefully, over time, the Twelve Steps will guide us more and more. We’ll speak to our family with the respect we’ve found in the Twelve Steps. Our spirit must truly believe. Then we can work the Steps.

Prayer for the Day

Higher Power, believing is something that lasts a lifetime. Give me the power to believe even when doubt creeps in.

Action for the Day

My beliefs are changing. Today, in my inventory, I’ll ask: Do I believe what I said today?
