When I come to Step Three, turning my will over to the care of a Higher Power, I begin to accept the fact that I can let go of my need to be in control. I am making a decision to let the God of my understanding lead me on my path of recovery. Faith in a Higher Power did not have to strike me with a lightening bolt. The focus and emphasis of my daily life changed as I let my Higher Power take control. I am seeing different results from my actions. I feel more confident in the challenges and choices that my life presents. I can begin to feel, enjoy, and trust again. My faith in a Power greater than myself freesme from the anxiety I carried. Insanity is doing the same things over and over again, expecting different results. Letting go of the control that had such a hold on me is somewhat frightening. As I listen and learn from others, I begin to feel and see miracles in myself. Trust and acceptance in my Higher Power is bound to follow.

Thought for Today: I will release my will to my Higher Power. In doing so, I am only giving up an illusion of control and seeing the reality of my situation.

“For if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, nothing will be impossible to you. “ ~ The Bible
