Step 3

It's not what step I am on, Still working through some further on, but right now at this time I need to look to step 3 to help me with my current step and with the things going on in my life.
 I love this step, it comes in handy and is something we all need to focus on, whether we are addicts or not.
Trust in God, no matter how challanging the circumstance... your peace of mind, your assurance of answers to vexing problems, your ultimate joy depend on your trust in Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ. (Richard G. SCott "The Sustaining Power of Faith in Times of Uncertainty and Testing" Ensign, May 2003)

"God, Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference"

You may not be able to change some things in your life, but you can change your willingness to trust in God and obey Him.

Continues submission to God's will reduces strife and brings more meaning in our lives.
(Step 3, Addiction Recovery Program : a Guide to addiction recovery and healing)

 The reason you keep going to meetings is so that you can repeatedly review the steps while you are working on your own, because you learn more and new things, and you find things like this that helps you remember what you need to bring back in that you have lost along the way.

Recently I have forgotten that it isnt up to me to do it all, that I have help.  I have help if I put my trust in God, and in the atonement of my Lord and Savior.  With them I can do all things.  I can get through this slump and rise higher than I was before falling into the slump.


Is it easy to put your trust in the direction of your life into the hands of God, for some, yes, for others, no.  Let go and let God, life will be easier.  Through Prayer, and through living close to the spirit and living right, thus allowing the spirit into your life, it is easier.
