The Limits of Self Reliance

Daily Reflections

THE LIMITS OF SELF-RELIANCE
“We asked ourselves why we had them [fears]. Wasn’t it because self-reliance failed us?”
—ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, p.68
All of my character defects separate me from God’s will. When I ignore my association with Him I face the world and my alcoholism alone and must depend on self-reliance. I have never found security and happiness through self-will, and the only result is a life of fear and discontent. God provides the path back to Him and to His gift of security and comfort. First, however, I must be willing to acknowledge my fears and understand their source and power over me. I frequently ask God to help me understand how I separate myself from Him.
