MY HP rescued me, pure and simple. I see that in everything. And the very cool thing to me is He rescued me, when I wasn't even sure He existed, and WAS sure that if He did, He couldn't possibly love me.

Love,

Sam

Good post Sam short but what else can I say,,,LOL soooo true. I did not however have a clue this would happen. And hope others add their ESP here for newcomers.

I learned through the program the tools to be able to get me to my HP and now I use them and the way I feel he would like me to act and react in my life. All because of the program.

My higher power made a decision to lock me away to save me from myself... the same way i would something i dearly loved, but was afraid it was gonna die or be destroyed... when God saw fit to release me, i realized that bitterness and resentments would take me right back to where i came from... i'm not bitter today... i was very angry for a long time and thought i was mistreated... i know today without a doubt that nobody owes me a damn thing... but i owe God everything... and if it wasn't for his grace today, i would not be clean and sober.

I would like to add for anyone that's reading this shaking their head and wondering what mountain i'm sitting on, that i'm on no mountain... it took years of fighting God, prayer, and the idea of God before i considered surrendering to anything besides myself... understand this, i truly believed i could fix me, and i almost died trying.

Like Sam, I thought my Higher Power had abandoned me, when really, it was I who abandoned Him, for a bottle or a drug. I was searching for something, not realizing that it was within me all along, if I would believe, again.
I love the saying; "I came..., I came to..., I came to believe."

Great stuff and Barry get off my mountain OK!!! Laughing

I still have times where my faith is very week. And I talk to God like I do my husband and that sometimes is out of anger, but I know he knows who I am and think anyway. It seems when I do get to my wits end things happen after I get angry at him. Its strange but I have to get into gut wrenching surrender sometimes to pull me back to serenity if that makes any sense.

The song and the poem..."Footprints in the Sand" comes to my mind in answer to this question

It feels as if that was specifically written just for me.

My son bought me a large tapestry when I first got into the program of that poem. I had never heard it and it struck a cord with me also.
