April 24 v 5 TWELVE STEPPING WITH POWER IN THE PROVERB
A wise man is strong,Yes, a man of knowledge increases strength;
STEP 11 - Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood God, praying only for knowledge of God's will for us and the power to carry that out .
The more you read and the more time you spend with others in recovery the stronger you will become. I have seen many take a ride on the relapse roller coaster especially newcomers who get thirty days plus . They are feeling on top of the world and unstoppable . It is that cockiness that gets them all the time. It does not matter how much clean time you got , any one of us can take that ride the trick is stay humble and never ever forget where it is you came from and how hard it was for you to get where you are now .When going to meetings really listen too the stories and keep the good stuff you hear . Your first three hundred and sixty five days in recovery should be you listening and taking notes . We all want to help others but we must first get our minds right and our feet on solid ground . Step eleven is important because it teaches us dependence on God .When we depend on others they let us down and when we depend on ourselves we disappoint but when we depend on God He never disappoints or lets us down .
Psalms 37:5 Commit your way to the LORD, Trust also in Him, and He will do it.
