Step 3Made a decision to turn our will and our lives our to the care of God as we understood Him.
If we decide, or make up our own mind, to turn our will and our life over to the care of God as we understand God, that decision ALONE will not turn it over. We will have to take the actions necessary to turn it over. The first three Steps are designed to bring us to the point where we become WILLING to turn our will and our lives over to the care of a Higher Power.
Then and only then are we spiritually ready to move on to Step 4.
The gift of desperation brought me to my knees, its been a rocky road of giving up and taking back my will, but turning it over to a higher power is like giving up a full time job of reigning in my insanity. I know I’m much happier when I’m not in my own head trying to tame the monster of insanity. Happy Easter my AA family. God Bless.
Being a mother, I always thought I needed to know all the answers. Mothers must know everything. After coming into AA, I realize my Higher Power has all the answers. How simple. Just have your listening ears on, ask for guidance, and say thank you. Hugs
If you turn it over and you don’t go you find yourself upside down
Keep it simple, is my journey and I’m blessed,very thankful
