FEAR

 

Fear is what kept me from picking up another drink in the beginning of recovery

 

I don't believe fear is a lack of faith some fears are very healthy and should be felt

 

Faith is the tool we pick up in order to recognize the fear and walk on thru it

 

My fears of failure has been taken away when I turned everything over to God

 

Fears are just other feeling I have learned how to deal with working the steps

 

Acceptance tells me how to change my behaviors and attitudes about things

 

After all nothing is perfect and I sure do have my moments that suck

 

And I feel I have failed myself or someone else close to me

 

But I do not have to dwell in fears and if it is something I can't change

 

Then I ask for the serenity to accept what God has given me today

 

After all He still has the big picture of what my life is all about not me

 

We all have tragic things happening in our lives at times

 

We have the right to feel the sadness but we also need to move on with our lives

 

Walking thru the fears without picking up that drink or substitute again

 

AA did not promise me a perfect world but it did give me a chest full of tools

 

To deal with anything that may come my way living life on life’s terms

 

What I want in life would be a perfect world where there is no pain or suffering

 

But I am human and know that others will always be doing things

 

That do not fit into my plans Fear can stop me in my tracks

 

If I continue with the kicking and screaming I need to accept

 

The things I can't change today with the serenity God has bless me with

 

God has given me choices today I choose to do His will

 

And not let fear cause me to fail in anything I try

 

I was told early on in the program you can never fail in life till you stop trying

 

So I just keep my faith in God and do the next right thing when times are hard

 

God has not given me more than I can handle so today I have succeeded

 

Because I did not fine it necessary to pick up a drink

 

Today and I still have my life free from the active disease of alcoholism

 

Thanks for being here for me God bless you all
