Step Seven


Wow step seven “humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings”


Well the very first thing I had to do is find out what humility was before I could have any


I was told when I first came to halls that I have to change things about my attitude and myself


I had tear down the ego to build up self-esteem had to let go of the anger and be grateful


As I listen to share after share I began to see they where walking the walk they talked


They did have a sense of balance they did not seem to have the anger and fear that I had


They were happy and contented with life and they had been telling me the truth about AA


The steps do keep us sober by replace the anger and fear and give us hope and love


With the sense of really belonging with God and with the teaching of the 12 steps


I found the humility to ask Him to remove the desire to drink help me see my character flaws


Also help with all my most glaring shortcomings to help me change and make the amends


to the many people I hurt make amends to all my creditors who I did not pay till sobriety


with humility I learned how to forgive people and most of all I learned how to forgive myself


When I got my sponsor he told me to sit and listen to the people who speak from their hearts


And to listen with my heart not my mind to learn how to forgive  and let go of the past


I did have to lose the anger and hatred my mind was still out trying to get me back out to drink


Anger was my biggest defect I need to look at resentments long before the anger rises


Into rage and hatred and share my feelings it’s was hard to tell when I was lying to myself


With my sponsors I started on my journey with this humility I found by following the steps


God had put many wise people into my path to help show me the way I must go

and when I honestly and humble asked Him to removed  the desire to drink from me He did


Today God is in my heart I have gratitude for all I have been given


I believe that anger has been put aside


Replaced with Love and respect for others who still suffer from our disease


random acts of kindness Are the best why to remove my anger


and doing this with humility is the best way to go


God is watching over us all and He likes when we do for others


God bless    Lt30Al
