Thank you for sharing. I picked my first sponsor because she shared that her God in early recovery was a leprechaun. I figured if she could obtain 11 years of sobriety with thoughts like that, then perhaps she could help me. I was raised in the Gospel Halls and was angry with God and the rules and regulations of the church. I found no freedom and forgiveness there, for me it was lip service, here what I say, but don't watch what I do.

AA brought me back to the church, I made my amends and left. I found that the spirituality I found in AA, much too big to fit in (W)Holy Spirit, which resides in all of us, that when we surrender, we are empowered to do what I need to do to stay clean and sober. I believe that Spirit resides in each of us, no matter who your God is. For me, God is One. He is all things, the Creator, the Healer, the Counsellor, the Comforter, and through my God,there is comfort and forgiveness. I am not my disease. I am my disease, it shaped me into who I am in today.

One day at a time, my God is revealed to me. It is up to me to be honest, open-minded, and willing to follow my God`s Will in today.
