You Will Not Fail

   
     "Rarely have we seen a person fail who has thoroughly followed our path. Those who do not recover are people who cannot or will not completely give themselves to this simple program, usually men and women who are constitutionally incapable of being honest with themselves. There are such unfortunates. They are not at fault; they seem to have been born that way. They are naturally incapable of grasping and developing a manner of living which demands rigorous honesty. There are those, too, with grave emotional and mental disorders, but many of them do recover if they have the capacity to be honest."
- Alcoholics Anonymous, p. 58

   
     So trust in God, do the right thing, follow your heart...
   
     And you will not fail.


God, teach me how to properly love and accept myself so that I may better love and accept others and do Your work well...

God, help me to let go of my fear, anger and resentment, that I may embrace Your principles of love, patience, compassion and courage...

God, give me the power and the willingness to do anything it takes to grow spiritually...

God, help me to become more honest...

God, please bring me the opportunity to help others...

God, make me a better person today...

God, keep me close to You today...

God, please help us all to heal ourselves and find our way to You...

God, take our will and make it Your own...

  1. I love your blog. I heard you speak at my college and it is true that trusting in God and relying on His Love to make yourself a better version of yourself may defeat the spiritual problem of addiction.
