  1. We admitted we were powerless over alcohol ... that our lives had become unmanageable.

    "I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out." (Romans 7:18)  

Step one is the beginning of a greater life, a cliché "A journey starts with the first step." I have always liked that cliché because it covers a span of  possibilities, I mean think of that! can that one statement not be applied to so many areas of our life at some point or another? The most exciting part of recovery is those who seek a faith based process in which to build the foundation of their recovery great hope in making that choice. Addiction to chemical substances disrupts all facets of a person's life: the physical body, the psychological and spiritual self and social relations. All of these areas require attention in the process of recovery. Open-mindedness is another quality that must be practiced to remain clean and sober. Being open-minded unlocks the doors to success. We become tolerant and inclined to absorb all ideas, thoughts, behaviors, and actions that will bring us growth in our recovery. Being open-minded means being receptive of suggestions that can elevate us to a different realm. Being lenient and easygoing during our journey will allow us to adhere to the principles that will enhance our ability to remain clean and sober. Being open-minded means that we are accepting towards anything that will promote our new, healthy way of living. Open-mindedness is important in the process of change and positive growth. Once we become open-minded, it is necessary that we acquire the willingness to act upon the positive influences that we encounter. To obtain willingness is to be favorably disposed in mind; to be ready, and prompt to do the necessary tasks to enhance our well-being. As we contain the willingness, and desire for change in order for us to follow through in action to achieve positive change. We must not be reluctant, but eager and without delay to do what is necessary to remain in recovery. With enthusiasm we venture into the realm of life, and all that it entails. Another positive attribute of Step 1 is the process of acceptance. With a consenting mind we step forward, unafraid of failure, but courageous in nature. We receive with favor the many facets of our disease. We come to understand that we are addicts and learn about our disease, knowing that we have the ability to make the required changes that are necessary to move onward in our recovery. We learn to adjust and coexist with reality. We endure the trails we encounter, always remaining in hopeful expectancy and anticipation that good will prevail. Remaining long-suffering and uncomplaining we march on, ready to battle the perils of life, while armored with the spiritual principles of the 12 Step program. first and foremost we start taking one day at a time focused on our desire to make our day clean and sober and eager to establish or reestablish our relationship with God who loves us so very much.
Remember we are always here you can call upon us any time....

Hope you like these common "Prayers," I know they have made huge changes in my life as helped me to keep God focused. This site, These are just sections from papers over the years, I have been doing this since 1985 when I was the Spiritual Advisor for a center and the development director for another over the years. I learned that recovery can take on a great number of faces for different people. Although, one thing I have always believed is Faith Based Recovery has an indwelling success rate unlike any other form. However, I talk to people all over the world and meet people who's belief system in not as mine, we do not judge people, we do not categorize people in little groups, what is important is your recovery regardless of your sex, religion, or national origin. Sure it would be nice to know that everyone was in a personal relationship with The God our Savior Creator and Salvation, this site is meant to help you establish, (If you have not done so already), and or keep a strong recovery life daily. A tool. I have been greatly blessed, in that, God has opened doors in other countries around the world for us. Many of you know already, for those that do not, I have a disc & Nerve disease, it is real hard for me just to be able to do what normal people do everyday, I say this to say that, it may take me some time but I usually get around to getting things done. I do write for more than one on-line site, if you don't see activity here does not mean that I will not get around to posting papers, there are time when I get stuck in bed for periods.
This site is meant for you... You matter, don't let anyone ever lead you to believe differently. God made you unlike anyone else, even though we kind-of look similar to others, there are very many great things about us God made just for us / in us.. Remember that! And Live accordingly. :) :)
