Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of GOD as we understood Him.

"... If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me."
(Luke 9:23**)

The third step is the heart of surrendering to the process of recovery. It is an act of faith. It is an extraordinary step that can have a profound impact on those who willingly embrace it. You may have a conversion experience as described by some who have gone before you, but as you practice this step (most people don't just take it--they take it over and over until it "clicks"), you will begin to see changes in your life you could not have imagined when you were drinking or using drugs.

From the spiritual enlightenment that results from applying Step 3 in our lives, we come to recognize the negative characteristics that inhibit our further growth and development. We become willing to let them go, and to rely on God to free us from their grips. Through faith we can quiet the voice within that causes us turmoil and stress, releasing the ties that bind them together. And through faith we strengthen our relationship with our Higher Power. As time goes by, we come to know God's Will, and we strive to follow in the direction that it leads us. Through faith we step aside, allowing God to work His miracles. The process of acceptance silences the unnecessary worry over the things that we cannot change. In times of stress, when we apply our new found faith, we are filled with energy, and we become reconditioned, revitalized and enlivened. Hopeful expectant fills our vision. Spiritual reflection becomes a way of life, enlightening our path, showing us the way to serenity is on the horizon. Before you commence your journey, bear in mind that the reconditioning of your mind is very important to stay in connection with the Hand of God who will lead you. God alone has the ability to rise above the confines of our mind to carry us into the realm of the spirit. A person who attains the essential knowledge of God's all-pervasiveness will unlock the doors to true freedom and happiness.


In years now of counseling, I have leaned so much about the obstacles we can put in our way blocking our progress, something that I myself had to learn in my own recovery, in order to overcome drugs and alcohol. I had to replace the old scripts that I grew-up learning, the self-destructive stuff I heard everyday and start believing that the God that loved me, could restore me to health - instill in me the power to live a healthy clean and sober life. So many people have problems with this step because they have not yet resolved those kind of issues yet in their lives. You have to be willing to put total faith in God to restore you fully.

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. :) :)
