If alcohol did anything to us, it was to prove to us over and over that we were powerless. But once we turned our will and our lives over to a power greater than ourselves, it became clear that God had been doing things for us what we could not do for ourselves, with a big one being getting sober!

 

This week’s topic of God Doing For Us What We Could Not Do Ourselves was inspired by a powerful story from Jennifer. To hear what Jennifer went through while in the throes of the disease is astonishing. Murder, trauma, and abuse all play heavily into the lifestyle she was living. Fortunately she was led to a program of recovery that loved her without judgement as she slowly became willing to turn her will and her life over to a power greater than herself. 

 

Thank you Jen for being an amazing example of how a twelve step program can work and how the worst things that happen to you, can also be the best. 

 

You inspire us.
