There are two kinds of people: those who say to God, “Thy will be done,” and those to whom God says, “All right then, have it your way.”
Most of us retract what we say we are going to do in the Third Step. WE turn our will over then when the heat is on, we grab it back and do it our way. If we do this often enough, and for long periods of time, the Higher Power sighs like an exasperated parent, determines we are not ready for His help, and lets us bungle our way until we hurt enough to try it again, His way.
When we let go of our Higher Power, we latch on to those around us in a tottering dance of dependency. And when we drop from exhaustion from trying to do it our way, we can either stay down or retrace our steps and do it His way. The choice is ours.
Today I will let my Higher Power work miracles.
When we lose God, it is not God who is lost.
