Promises [Alcoholics Anonymous Pages 83-84] “Pay Forward” #240

Today’s “Pay Forward” gift is – Promises. “…We are going to know a new freedom and a new happiness.” Yes, I know, what’s given me. “…we will see how our experience can benefit others.” My transformed defects are benefiting others. “…We will intuitively know how to handle situations which used baffle us. We will suddenly realize that God is doing for us what we could not do for ourselves.” I hated my powerlessness when I arrived at the doors of Alcoholics Anonymous. My incompetence in all areas was a reality I had to face. As the result of my practicing A.As’ spiritual principles, I awakened to the indwelling Presence within me and the world. By grace I do intuitively know all I need to, for one at a time, and I am sure of the Source of my grace. I experience failure and doubt, being double-minded when I drop into an old self-centered ditch. My life is effective when I look to my True Source, I choose to call our Father, and I seek to do and to be His love and Will. With the Divine Spiritual awakening we experience the uncreated Presence, and our life takes on a whole new meaning. The Father giving Himself to His children and His children giving themselves to Him. A.A. gives us the tools to empty ourselves to make room for the Divine Spirit of Love. “For we are the temple of God. As God said: “I will live in them and walk among them…” Thy Love, Thy Will be done.
