Miracle of Healing
What is this but a miracle of healing? Yet its elements are simple.
Circumstances made him willing to believe. He humbly offered himself
to his Maker—then he knew. Even so has God restored us all to our right
minds. To this man, the revelation was sudden. Some of us grow 
more slowly. But He has come to all who have honestly sought Him.
- Alcoholics Anonymous, (We Agnostics) p. 57 

Thought to Ponder
I came; I came to; I came to believe.

Morning all. So great to be here with you. Susan, very grateful recovered alcoholic by God's Grace. As time has gone on, and from my own personal experiences, I have discovered that keeping Step 2 simple at first to start is very important. I got stuck on this whole God deal for a good long time and it is a miracle that I stayed sober throughout. If someone is willing to believe in something more Powerful than them, awesome!!!  Keep moving forward in the Steps. That is how one will develop the experiences which will prove that God does indeed exist and can Heal, even a sick little soul like this alcoholic. I was trying figure it all out before moving forward however that is not the BB instructions. Our steps are written to be done quickly so we can find freedom before we relapse. Love the journey, love the lessons, love the continued growth. Blessings to all.
