STEP 2 - Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.



Zephaniah 3 : 17 "The LORD your God is in your midst, A victorious warrior He will exult over you with joy, He will be quiet in His love, He will rejoice over you with shouts of joy.


God is patiently waiting for you to return to Him ! After all you are His creation ! Being apart is the cause of all your troubles that why the 12 steps have been so successful because they get you back in touch with your Heavenly father .
