In the rooms of both AA and NA we hear that finding Faith in a Higher Power is important, that thru this spiritual relationship you will find the courage and strength to move forward in your recovery even with the unknown infront of you.
This is very true for most, a blind Faith to continue forward and take on all that we had once feared. A higher power of our understanding is what the book says and trust that as you move on in recovery things will work out for you. This too is true though God isn’t going to do all the work for you. He will give you strength and guidance if you listen closely but you must do the work.
Those first few days when our bodies wreath in pain as we go through detox and we beg God to make the pain stop, it will stop but not before the poison is out of our bodies. Then we beg God to help us get our lives back on track but how do we do that when we have nothing to start over with… With God all things are possible. So do you sit there hoping God is just going to lay a job and housing in your lap or do you go out there and change your situation in order to win that new job. I had to go back to school for a bit in order to get the job I wanted, so I figured out how to make it happen.
But first I had to address the health issues I now had after years of polluting my body with drugs and bad behaviors. All the while trying to not get discouraged as my Higher Power said, slow down! It won’t be repaired over night!
So back to Faith!!!
Faith, that if I just stayed clean and sober for today, if I continued to do the next right thing, that my life would change… in time!
Faith in your Higher Power is something I recommend you find and create a private relationship thru meditation, prayer and other spiritual enlightenment… it does make a difference in how you will feel about where you are going on your path called LIFE!
Best of everything in your daily reprieve called Recovery!
