The Power of Love

"We begin to see that God's love has been present all the time, just waiting for us to accept it."
Basic Text, p. 46

God's love is the transforming power that drives our recovery. With that love, we find freedom from the hopeless, desperate cycle of using, self-hatred, and more using. With that love, we gain a sense of reason and purpose in our once purposeless lives. With that love, we are given the inner direction and strength we need to begin a new way of life: the NA way. With that love, we begin to see things differently, as if with new eyes.

As we examine our lives through the eyes of love, we make what may be a startling discovery: The loving God we've so recently come to understand has always been with us and has always loved us. We recall the times when we asked for the aid of a Higher Power and were given it. We even recall times when we didn't ask for such help, yet were given it anyway. We realize that a loving Higher Power has cared for us all along, preserving our lives till the day when we could accept that love for ourselves.

The Power of love has been with us all along. Today, we are grateful to have survived long enough to become consciously aware of that love's presence in our world and our lives. Its vitality floods our very being, guiding our recovery and showing us how to live.

Just for Today: I accept the love of a Higher Power in my life. I am conscious of that Power's guidance and strength within me. Today, I claim it for my own.

There is no other thing that can equal God's love for us. It is the best feeling that we have received from Him, His unconditional love for us. Even though we cannot see Him personally, but we can feel His love towards us every day through the things He has given to us and the experiences He let us experienced. We should be grateful that He is always at our side, ready to accept us no matter what happens. We should be thankful to Him because of the blessings He showered upon us always and for the life He gives us every day.

Very inspirational to hear about someone pursuing their dream and becoming successful instead of following the traditional path. Intradiscal Electrothermal Therapy
