August 25 CHP 107 v 29 TWELVE STEPPING WITH STRENGTH FROM THE PSALMS
HE CALMS THE STORM , SO ITS WAVES ARE STILL !
(GODS BIG BOOK)
STEP 11 - Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.
Being a long term Recovery member does not mean I have it all under control and I am exempt from Relapse . It does mean that if I am willing to pray trust and work with GOD I will have no fear when the storms of life come. In this verse GOD is making a Promise that HE WILL CALM THE STORM! GOD has kept HIS promises 2000 years plus so you can count on HIM. Step Eleven does not mean that your a professional RECOVER EEE , it means you have been broken and humbled in ways most folks will never experience and you have developed a Relationship with your creator GOD ! Continue to trust HIM and when life Hits the fan don't get cocky remember your pain and pray . BE STILL AND KNOW HE is your GOD and HE will CARRY you THROUGH !
GOD, GRACE ,AND GRATITUDE !
1 Thessalonians 5:16-19 Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. Do not quench the Spirit.
