As active addicts we live in fear. We escape and avoid and deny by using, but the fear of living never subsides. In recovery, I use my faith in a higher power to overcome fear. I quit trying to figure out the outcome of situations, knowing that I do not have to be concerned with the result. I do the best I can each day; live in the moment; and trust that something far greater than I will ensure that everything will work out, even better than I could imagine. I pray for guidance, support, understanding, acceptance of all things and the willingness to grow. It’s simple, and it works.
