Progress is a nice word. But change is its motivator.
~ Robert F. Kennedy ~
We humbly ask God in our Seventh Step to remove our Shortcomings. We are asking God to do in other parts of our lives what He has done to our addiction. Each moment we experience freedom from our disease, we acknowledge God’s Power. Many of us lost our desire for our addiction quickly. Others waged a long and painful battle to reach a point of surrender. How will God work on our shortcomings? Will it be immediate or will it be over time?
Our Fellowship suggests that we live our lives one day at a time. Personal change occurs but one day at a time. We must resist the temptation to set God’s clock to fast forward. The long-sought-after changes will occur in ways we cannot predict and should not expect.
I have not been the best judge as to what is good for me. I must trust God in all things, even those that are most personal to me.
