Shoebox's Story
Step 3

This step was making sure I turned my will and life over to care of my higher power.

Having a higher power for me is dependence 24 hours a day, it is not something that just sits in the back round as a back up generator, but in the fore front of every decision and every action I now try to take going forward. The more I believe in this concept, the stronger I am becoming. I feel comfortable and secure by having this in my life, saying the Serenity prayer daily and in times of need is a great support mechanism.

I have said the step 3 prayer "God, I offer myself to Thee-to build with me and to do with me as Thou wilt. Relive me of the bondage of self, that I may better do thy will. Take away my difficulties, that victory over them may bear witness to those I would help of Thy power, Thy love, and Thy way of life. May I do Thy will always!"

When I said this prayer it reminded me of the Oath of Alliance I once took when I joined the British Army, that's how powerful and life changing it felt to myself. I now fill like I have done my "basic Spiritual training" and ready for maintaining it and continuing to grow more spiritually daily. Striving for excellence.

Thy Will be done...

In Unity
My name is Martin, I am a compulsive gambler, my last bet was 29.9.2017. God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things that I can, and wisdom to know the difference.
