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
