Early on in our sobriety, many of us didn’t get this G-d or Higher Power thing. We claimed that given our track records, it was impossible for us to believe in a Higher Power. If there was a G-d, we had never seen him in our lives. How could G-d have allowed us to lose our spouses, get fired from jobs, suffer from sickness and face bankruptcy. If there was a G-d he certainly wasn’t a part of our lives.
In sobriety we have come to realize that our Higher Power was with us all along. As we recount our stories we begin to see that there were countless incidents of G-d’s intervention which we had chalked up to coincidence. Today, we think differently. We no longer believe in the law of accident. In fact, our experience has shown us that the more we pay attention to the travails of life, the more we see G-d’s hand. The more closely we listen, the more frequently we hear G-d talking to us through other people. We realize how blessed our lives truly are.
Personal Reflection: How can I create the space for G-d to enter my life?
