CHANGE OUR HEARTS
Oh, if I could only be more patient, tolerant, and kind with others. If I could end my grudge, and not judge as I trudge. If I could replace my hate, my fear, with love, with understanding tenderness.
When anyone, anywhere reaches out asking for help, my program teaches me to be there, to offer what experience, hope, and maybe strength I may conjure. Surely God sends grace to aid in this endeavor.
As an alcoholic, I can be changed through working the Twelve Steps. Drinking does not define me as once it did. Learning about Right Living is now my definition, and I try to adjust to a sane and sober way of life, a life which hurts nobody any more, evermore...not even me.
I would SO much wish to let Peeps know what and how God did for me what I could not do for myself. Yep, I have to work with God...daily, or He will let me drift about until I am more ready. I am more ready now.
Lord, this time...change our hearts!
Glad for today!
