Humbly asked Him to remove all our shortcomings.

"Humble yourselves before the Lord, and He will lift you up." (James 4:10)  

The seventh step is important in that it signifies our readiness to change our patterns of behavior and approach life with a fresh vision. We no longer hang on to our character defects as we would the old "comfortable" shirt. We realize there is a better way to live life. Be ready to make new constructive behaviors to live more positively, our thinking process begin a new transformation. We have become willing, and now we are ready to move forward. Through the previous six steps we have come to believe that we mismanaged our lives and did not live to the fullest as we were self-destructive, blaming, and hostile to change. We have now reached the midpoint of the 12 steps and are on the threshold of a new way of living.


"By the time I got the seventh step, believe you me, I was ready to have my shortcomings removed. I was tired of being tired, worn out of the struggles I put myself through. Always having to justify my behavior, always having to be right, always wanting to prove something, make people notice me. It was such a relief to not have to be right all the time, and to know that it was okay to be a human being, OK to acknowledge I was not any better or perfect." Kurt G.


The imperfections of our past and present no longer have to tear us down. As we take hold of steps the direction that is shown to us, we will flourish, and gain the necessary knowledge to ascend above the blunders that haunted us in the past. In order for Step 7 to reap its many rewards, it will be essential for us to do our part in the positive change development. Our Higher Power will fill us with positive motivation to continuously move forward in our recovery. We should courageously take a step determinedly forward, devoid of reservation or distrust, and follow in the direction that is shown to us. We learn to utilize the many Spiritual Principles accessible to us as we transform and merge into the beings we were destined to be. Positive change will be noticeable while undertaking Step 7, and you will be guided and shown the way to the freedom that serenity produces. As we rely and entrust our will to God, the restrictions and limitations that we possess will dissipate into oblivion. We will become proficient in replacing our shortcomings with Spiritual remedies, such as faith, acceptance, courage, vigilance, and staying power. While we preserve an unwavering and strong faith that our Higher Power will deliver us from the inadequacies of our past, we become filled with a new found strength of character. We strive for greatness on our path, and we refuse to permit trepidation or weakness to restrain our personal growth, and spiritual advancement.


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. :) :)
