The Serenity Prayer

Step by Step

Tuesday, Sept. 9, 2014

Today, I accept that I need a Higher Power to progress toward a quality sobriety. To those in the Program who might say that a Higher Power is a myth or that an entity stronger than ourselves does not exist, I look back on my own experience as a drinking alcoholic when I conducted myself without regard to the needs or feelings of others, and when I made decisions based only on my wants. I didn’t do such a great job running my life on my own, and it was only when I sought out and found a Power stronger and wiser than me that I began my journey to the Program’s spiritual awakening. And the Higher Power that the Program says we all need is not necessarily the God of organized religion or even a god. That Higher Power can be nothing more simple than a development of a moral conscience that dictates that how I manage my life and my choices involve not just myself but others as well. Today, I ask if I need a Higher Power. My answer: yes, I do. And our common journey continues. Step by step. – Chris M., 2014
