SEPTEMBER 19th

ACCEPTANCE

We admitted we couldn't lick alcohol with our own remaining resources, and so we accepted the further fact that dependence upon a Higher Power (if only our A.A. group) could do this hitherto impossible job.
The moment we were able to accept these facts fully, our release from the alcohol compulsion had begun.
AS BILL SEES IT, p. 109

Freedom came to me only with my acceptance that I could turn my will and my life over to the care of my Higher Power, whom I call God.
Serenity seeped into the chaos of my life when I accepted that what I was going through was life, and that God would help me through my difficulties and much more, as well. Since then He has helped me through all of my difficulties!
When I accept situations as they are, not as I wish them to be, then I can begin to grow and have serenity and peace of mind.
