The coming of faith! I was alone no more!

Bill W., writes “In my own case, the foundation stone of freedom from fear is that of faith: a faith that, despite all worldly appearances to the contrary, causes me to believe that I live in a universe that makes sense.

To me, this means a belief in a creator who is all power, justice and love, a God who intends for me a purpose, a meaning, and a destiny to grow, however little and haltingly, toward his own likeness and image.  Before the coming of faith I had lived as an alien in a cosmos that too often seemed both hostile and cruel. In it there  could be no inner security for me.

“When I was driven to my knees by alcohol, I was made ready to ask for the gift  of faith. And all was changed. Never again, my pains  and problems  notwithstanding, would I experience my former desolation. I saw the universe to be lighted by God’s love; I was alone no more.”
