Oct 18: Let Go and Let God

Let Go and Let God

“Both you and the new man must walk day by day in the path of spiritual progress. If you persist, remarkable things will happen. When we look back, we realize that the things which came to us when we put ourselves in God’s hands were better than anything we could have planned. Follow the dictates of a Higher Power and you will presently live in a new and wonderful world, no matter what your present circumstances!” (Page 100 in Big Book of AA)
As I look back over the past 23 months, remarkable things have indeed happened in my life. As I have let go of me being in charge/control, my higher power, who I choose to call God, has performed true miracles in my life. I have to keep reminding myself where I have come from. Today, there is what seems a Mount Everest issue in my life. Despite having seen what my higher power has done, I am still struggling with letting God have it.

I want to control the circumstances. I want to control the outcome. I deserve it … right? You would feel this way if you were me! Feel sorry for me — I didn’t ask for this … I could go and on.

Yet I know he has done miracles and will continue to do so as I choose to let him. So today I am working on letting go of what I want, think, need etc.

Please consider sharing with the group your ESH about letting go and letting God.
