SEEDS OF FAITH


Faith, to be sure, is necessary, but faith alone can avail
nothing. We can have faith, yet keep God out of our lives.

TWELVE STEPS AND TWELVE TRADITIONS, p. 34

As a child I constantly questioned the existence of God. To
a "scientific thinker" like me, no answer could withstand a
thorough dissection, until a very patient woman finally said
to me, "You must have faith." With that simple statement,
the seeds of my recovery were sown!

Today, as I practice my recovery—cutting back the
weeds of alcoholism—slowly I am letting those early seeds
of faith grow and bloom. Each day of recovery, of ardent
gardening, brings the Higher Power of my understanding
more fully into my life. My God has always been with me
through faith, but it is my responsibility to have the
willingness to accept His presence.

I ask God to grant me the willingness to do His will.
