Sunday Morning Spiritual Meeting 10:00 a.m. EST

 Topic: It's about the journey, not the destination

Courage to Change January 26, pg. 26

I'd read the Twelfth Step many times before I saw it. But there it was:

"Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps..."
What a promise! If I worked these steps, I'd have a spiritual awakening!
There was hope, even for me!
Now that's not why I first came to Al-Anon. Like many, I came to find 
out how to make someone stop drinking. It was much later when I 
realized that my life was missing a sense of direction only a Higher Power
could provide.
Those wonderful Twelfth Step words gave me the encouragement I 
needed to begin at the beginning. Slowly, sometimes painfully, I worked
my way through the steps. 
In time, something amazing happened. I was filled with a sense of my
God and His love for me. I felt whole. I knew I'd never be the same again.
Todays Reminder
  The Steps offer me a road map for living that leads to a spiritual awakening
& beyond. I can't skip ahead to the end of the journey-which can at times 
be a hard one-
but I can put one foot in front of the other & follow the directions I've been
given, knowing that others who have gone before me have received more
along the way than they had ever dreamed. 
"The first time I ever heard the Twelve Steps read at a meeting, I became 
very still. I felt I was not breathing...I was just listening with my whole being...
I knew deep within me that I was home."~ As We Understood...
