I am willing to allow God as I understand God to demonstrate his will for me today. “We never apologize for God. Instead we can let God demonstrate through us what he can do. We ask him to remove our fear and direct our attention to what he could have us be. At once we commence to outgrow fear.” Bill W.
If I have been sad most of my life, I surely understand what fear is. Fear is at the core of my depression so that “Other people are such that I must fear, hare and envy them.” Dr. Dorothy Rowe.
Isolated by my fear pushes me to risk choosing life or living with hope and serenity or life imprisonment behind the bars of my own insecurity and self- created isolation. And after I admit to another human being the low opinion that I have of myself or had of myself, my recovery begins. I slowly reveal who I am to others in my group.
Apologize means to make amends. To make amends means to change. I need to forgive myself, first of all, for not being the perfect person I thought that I needed to be.
Higher Power I place my trust in you! We haven’t been able to trust much in the past but now, thanks to each other’s encouragement we will begin to trust that you will protect and help us through those times we fear most. ”
Question: Has your fear kept you from living life? Has your fear kept you from being and achieving things that would have brought you personal joy and happiness?
