We all have faith… faith in our own ability to manage and control life. Until that faith is proven hollow.
The founders of the Twelve Steps discovered that simply being willing to believe that a power greater than ourselves exists and is able to help us (even if we don’t understand how), enables us to move forward. The tiniest bit of faith allows help to begin flowing into our lives.
But before most of us can accept the idea of God as a higher power, we usually have to cough up some religious hairballs.
Today we are introducing Step 2 of the Twelve Steps: We came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
