Our Relationship with a Higher Power

"Ongoing recovery is dependent on our relationship with a loving God who cares for us and will do for us what we find impossible to do for ourselves."
Basic Text, p. 99
Working the Twelve Steps of Narcotics Anonymous gives us a fresh start in life and some guidance for living in the world. But the steps are more than a fresh start. When we do our best to work the steps, we develop a relationship with our personal Higher Power.
In the Third Step, we decide to allow a loving God to influence our lives. Much of the courage, trust, and willingness we need to continue through the succeeding steps comes from this decision. In the Seventh Step, we go even further by asking this Higher Power to change our lives. The Eleventh Step is a way for us to improve the relationship.
Recovery is a process of growth and change in which our lives are renewed. The Twelve Steps are the road map, the specific directions we take in order to continue in recovery. But the support we need to proceed with each step comes from our faith in a Higher Power, the belief that all will be well. Faith gives us courage to act. Each step we work is supported by our relationship with a loving God.
Just for Today: I will remember that the source of my courage and willingness is my relationship with my Higher Power.

We are always connected with higher power whether we accept it or not. But, the only thing is how we accept that and build ourself. If we walk on a righteous path we can do great for the world.

I have been living in a feeling of darkness, going through so many things, and then I ask God "Why? I always try to be good.” But know I am certain that I am going through this because I am the one who had given up to read the Word of our Holy God. There is so much negativity in my life that I wasn't reading the Holy Bible and I wasn't praying to Him like I should have been doing. I thank my Heavenly Father for waking me up and after reading His words just last night and after I have prayed to Him, I slept really good and woke up in the best feeling in such a long time. Thank You God for waking me up and realizing what the problem is.

If you put God at the center of your life, He will surely guide you in your everyday life. It is important to build a strong relationship with Him to strengthen your faith. When you have strong faith in God, you are not afraid to try new things that are foreign to you because you know that He is always right beside you, guiding you. We should not take for granted the blessings He gave us. We should be thankful of the things He showered for us even if we did not ask for it, and be patient for He has great plans for our lives. Just trust Him and He will do the rest, but we need to take action to achieve what we want and not just waiting for a blessing to come. You know, it is better to receive gifts from Him, if we work hard for it. essay writing service reviews best service
