When I place more value on my serenity



” When I place more value on my serenity and sobriety than on anything else, I can maintain them at a higher level.”


I have learned an amazing lesson in adopting the Twelve Step principles to my personal life. The more I let go of what I expect to happen and just relax, that which I expect happens. The message for me today is that I know that this program works for those who work the program. In the Twelve Steps I have found a healthy program where I find that the more I try and give up control over others, the more serenity and peace flows through me and out to others.

My fears seem to attract fear. I expect only to keep my mind and heart at peace by keeping my heart and mind on God.  I now believe that my love for God’s will, can bring that much more love to me.


We pray that God will hear our plea and  that we might be able to live just for today!
