Daily Reflections February 7
True humility and an open mind can lead us to faith, and every A.A. meeting is an assurance that God will restore us to sanity if we rightly relate ourselves to Him.
TWELVE STEPS AND TWELVE TRADITIONS, p. 33
In one single night, the darkness of years past seemed to all flood into me. I had become a victim of my own drinking habit; from hallucinations, to blackouts and despair surging in with every sip taken.
It was only then that I reached out for help which resonates still today – God’s guidance showed me there is always hope and no matter how deep you have sunken or what depths your fears may take hold over you when looking back on life everything can change if we believe in ourselves once again.
Through his grace he has relieved my obsession entirely making way for clarity as well as restoring peace across both body and mind – proving true just how powerful faith truly is!
The pain of addiction comes from being so far away from our true selves that we can’t find our way back. Fortunately, for those willing to reach out for help, it is possible to turn around and look within.
It takes immense courage to share the darkness in your mind and heart but it is tremendously healing when you replace self-sabotage with self-love. This journey of self-acceptance is not easy and no one should have to do it alone.
We hope that this story of transformation and faith inspires you to believe that nothing is ever truly hopeless and you are never too far gone to be saved. Celebrate life everyday and remember that even in our lowest moments, hope can change everything!
