THE POWER IN 3



Step 3 “Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him”


THE POWER IN 3


Turning over my WILL and my LIFE…

What does this mean?

It will bring hope

that has yet to be seen.


MY life -MY will: MY actions, MY thoughts

Were they taking me places? Definitely not places I wanted to be .


I called the shots, I made the rules,

I lost it all, and became a fool.

Chasing love, I began to hate.

Seeking happiness, I sealed my fate by holding on to control

I thought that I had.

The serenity I longed for became elusive,

The actions I took because my thoughts were intrusive

caused a journey of pain, addiction, and loss,

Until one moment I considered the cost, and thought that just maybe  I’m NOT the boss

of my life… so,

I made a decision to turn over my power

to The God of my Understanding , having faith every hour that

this Power could lead, this Power could guide,

this Power had love so deep and so wide; I let go of the wheel.

I was along for the ride.

The steps that I took as I strived to recover from

The pain in my life helped me to discover that I am never alone.

There are others who care, people who get it.

My Power is there, with me through struggles.

One day at a time,  I am given the choice: rein in or give in.    

Will I use my voice and express what I need?

Will I enter “the rooms” with God as my guide.

Will I walk the 12 Steps so my fear will subside?

Turning over my WILL and my LIFE takes persistence

Every step of the way I fight the resistance

 that lets me believe I can recover alone.

 but I know better, the seeds have been sown.

The seeds of wellness, and faith to believe

that by turning it over I will receive everything in my life I want to achieve.

The God of my understanding is wiser than me

  Being willing to accept this: THAT is Step 3.
