Today’s Reminder: Your Higher Power

“I have held many things in my hands, and I have lost them all; but whatever I have placed in God’s hands, that I still possess.”

~ Martin Luther ~

Courage to Change Series: What’s Important?

*Page 269*

I find myself taking Step Three over and over again. Unfortunately, I often wait until a problem starts to overwhelm me before I finally give in and turn it over to my Higher Power. Nevertheless, today I am striving to place my entire will and life in my Higher Power’s hands with the willingness to accept His or Her will for me, no matter what. The awareness I have gained in Al-Anon lets me know that my way has seldom worked in the past. It’s only when I let go and trust the inner voice that quietly nudges me in the direction of my Higher Power’s choosing that my life becomes fulfilling.

3 C’s of Al-Anon

  1. We didn’t CAUSE it
  2. We can’t CONTROL it
  3. We can’t CURE it


Questions to Consider This Week

  1. Is there an area of my life that I treat as though it were too important to turn over to my Higher Power?
  2. Are my efforts to control that area making my life better and more manageable? Or are these efforts causing more confusion rather than harmony in my circumstances?
  3. Will I become willing, just for this week, to seek wise counsel from my Higher Power before taking action?
  4. What specific things in my life have I lost as a result of trying to control and manage them on my own power?
