” You don’t get better overnight, but you do get much better. I was as down in the muck as far as I could go. I had to go and open the door for the first time because there was no other place to go. I had already used up all the hiding places in my life. I still have many problems like anyone else, but when I need sleep very badly, I turn the problem over to my Higher Power and go to sleep. I can always pick up the next morning. Somehow it all gets done. Nothing so bad has happened to me. I have trouble trying to figure out what I am exactly supposed to do. I am sure God points me in the right direction. Sometimes, I miss the message but it will come to me eventually what God wants for me. All you have to do is reach out and get it. But my faith is stronger now in God than it has ever been in my life because I need that companion in my life. It is there for all of us if we just reach out and take it.” (P. 147/Personal Stories)
