“Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.”

If it were not for my solid catholic faith growing up, the firm belief system my mother instilled in us, and the guidance my father showed, I would still be on step 2. I have always wished to have the faith I had as a child; I never questioned anything. I know I loved God, and God loved me. When I hear of others struggling with step 2, I struggle to understand why.

When I ask God for something, and it doesn’t happen, I used to get angry. Today I thank God for my unanswered prayers. Because I am grateful for where I am, what I am, and who I am. I feel God is calling me to work in recovery and help others. However, that may be.

What are your thoughts on step 2?
