    Surrender to Your Higher Power

    August 12, 2022 Dear God, good morning. Today’s reading is about what to do when you doubt yourself. In recovery, I do doubt myself all the time. I am working on step four which states, “Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.” Pg 42 in the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions is confusing for me. In this step, I need to surrender all of my fears and write them out on the computer. I also need your help, Jesus. I need to talk with Terri again, and she’s so patient with me. I hope she understands. I do not understand the third part of step four. I doubt…

    Holy Spirit Is Within Us

    August 29, 2022 Dear God,  Do I need to get baptized again to receive the “Holy Spirit?” It says it in the Scripture. I’ve been baptized as a baby but not as an adult. Do I need to get baptized in my adulthood? According to my experience, I felt the presence of you, God. It was when I was weeping for help last year, and I felt a warm feeling around my body. Then the crying stopped. And I believe that you held me that morning. I knew I felt a sense of peace wash over me that morning. The book God’s Promises for every day writes, “You should know…

    Spiritual Awakening in Progress

    August 21, 2022   Dear God, good morning. Thank you for Jeanne. She’s a love bug and looks a little like Joan Jet. Yesterday, Jeanne was worried and felt something terrible, and she texted me, “Answer your phone.” Jeanne is so funny. Then she called me. We spoke for forty-five minutes. I love spending time with Jeanne. Her humor is laughable; she speaks her mind and doesn’t hold back. She’s adorable and lovable too. Thank you for Jeanne. She lives a beautiful spiritual life. Today’s reading from God’s Promises is about coming closer to God daily. It writes, “Then Jesus said, “I’ am the bread that gives life. Whoever comes…

    Faith in Surrendering

    August 20, 2022 Dear God, good morning I just read AA thought for the day. It writes, “When many hundreds of people can say that the consciousness of the presence of God is today the most important fact of their lives, they present a powerful reason why one should have faith.” I never had faith until last year, when I felt God’s presence. I was desperate for help. I was sohba and feeling depressed again, which I hate. I was spiritually sick with a soul sickness so bad that I would not pray to you, Jesus. I’m tired this morning. I called my doctor yesterday for a refill of my medicine.…

    I Have God’s Grace in my Heart

    July 8, 2022 Dear God, good morning. I’ve been up since three, and I’m tired, but I wanted to write to you. Today’s reading from God’s Promises for every day it writes. “What The Bible has to say about, The Return of Christ.” I do believe in heaven because the Bible says it. They said, Men of Galilee, why are you standing here looking into the sky? Jesus, whom you saw taken up from you into heaven, will come back the same way you saw him go.”  Act 1:11 From what I’ve read, Jesus, the angels will come down from the heavens, and war will break out between good and…

      Step 4:   Made a searching a fearless moral inventory of ourselves.   After being in the program a while and getting through the first three steps, I’ll admit I was a little nervous about step 4.  People told me it was the “the make it or break it” step and how some folks even relapsed during this time because it brought back a lot of trauma.  I mean hell, who wants to revisit the past that we shoved so far deep down into our souls that we tried to forget?  But, we have to be FEARLESS.  Some things we have to just do afraid.  If we ever wait…

    Grace of God

    June 24, 2022 Dear God, good morning. I woke up at 3:00 a.m. I’m exhausted this morning. The Bible speaks about “The Grace of God.” I think the Grace of God has touched us all in some part of our lives, or maybe not. However, I believe God’s Grace touched Moses. Moses spoke to God, and According to the book God’s Promises for every day, it writes, “The Lord said to Moses, I will do what you ask, because I know you very well, and I am pleased with you. Then Moses said, “Now, please show me your glory.” The Lord answered, “I will cause all my goodness to pass…

    Attitude of Gratitude

    Gratitude List June 14, 2022   God has done so much for me. Like keeping me sane and sober these past 11 years. During my depression, He was there for me. God has put so many great spiritual people in my path.   A.A.  The program keeps me sober the fellowship keeps me sane. The 12 steps keep me on the path to God and getting closer to people.   Geri has been by my side off and on for 35 years. At one time, she was my rock and go-to person. Her faith in God and the program attracted me to her. The work she has done is incredible.…

    Patience and encouragement

    June 15, 2022   Dear God, good morning. I had a good night’s sleep, thank you, Jesus. Today’s reading talks about trusting you, sweet Jesus, when I’m weak and sometimes feel hopeless. You came to me and lifted my spirit. I need to believe in you more. When I feel stressed and overwhelmed, I write to you, which helps me get closer to you, and then the stress disappears. Your golden name is “Prince of Peace.” According to God’s Promises for every day., “But the Spirit produces the fruit of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.” Galatians 5:22-23 Your Spirit lives inside me now. Your fruits help…

    Higher Power

    June 14, 2022   Good morning, God. today’s reading is about “Walking away from God.”  Yes, I walked away from you many times because I simply would not believe in you, Jesus. I had a soul sickness of not believing in you or any religions. I knew about you through the fellowship, and I didn’t realize that I was stubborn, arrogant, self-absorbed, not connecting with others in the fellowship, and not reading the Big Book or the Twelve Steps And Twelve Traditions. I have been a runner my whole life. Our Step book contains many paragraphs about the atheist man or woman. It writes: “Let’s look first at the case…
