Life's Lessons

 

Life's Lessons are new every day we wake up we learn something new about life

 

At first I had a real hard time with changing my way of living in the here and now

 

The life style AA was pushing with the God thing just did not really appeal to me

 

Did not want God's condemning judging ways in my life anymore I was doing fine

 

All I needed to do is learn how to drink the right way like social drinking

 

Still thought I could do thing with out anyone’s help

Who need people telling them what to do all the time?

 

My life was in the crapper and still wanted it my way

How sick was I its not like I could ever drink in safety again

 

Well life is a constant change and you change or go

This is the lesson we all learn in recovery

 

Old life habits are very hard to change

I did have to change and learn new lessons or just die

 

I started to slowly change my life style from that selfish SOB that I was

To a caring and loving person

 

Greatest change I have ever made because of this program was

I found out that there is a God and I am not He

 

He could do for me what I could not do for myself

All I had to do is get out of the way and let Him

 

I needed to learn all about who I was and how I fit into the picture of His will

 

Not My will to fit my selfish ways

Big change working on me and looking at harms I did

 

Instead of looking for someone to blame for all my mistakes

 

Making amends was a big step forward to changing my attitudes about things

 

Along with knowledge of His power I have been give this gift of sobriety

 

Today I love the new way of life I have I met many new friends everyday

 

And I have a marriage that is blessed by God Himself my wife is my angel

 

And we share or new lives together in recovery we sponsor many people

 

We enjoy the company of AA folks very much wherever we met them

 

Today my purpose in life is to make changes in my own life finding God's will for me

 

Also to help others make changes in their lives to find their own high power

 

I try living by the prayer of St Francis living to give instead of looking to receive

 

Today I have a new way of life free from hopelessness anger guilt and remorse

 

I can now use my past to help others in finding themselves in there recovery

 

The 12 steps of recovery are so freely given us

 

God has many lessons to teach each and every one of us

 

He will only teach us when we are ready to accept His will for today

 

Everyday is a new beginning to try and do Gods will for just this one simple day

 

Being human I still have many faults I still am learning about

 

As the lessons continued the months turned in years but still each day I have another lesson to learn about myself and how I relate to life and how I relate to others

 

The lessons never stop life seems to get better every day as long as I remember

 

Whose will I am doing just staying sober and daily changing my life with His help?

 

Reaching out and given back what He and this fellowship has given

Me freedom from the bottle and myself

 

Everyday we are given the opportunity to learn a new lesson in life

 

If we ask God's help each morning to do what is right

 

And thank Him at night for all our blessings He has given us today

 

We will stay happy and sober

 

God bless each of you
