I had a dilemma.
I could not stop drinking.
I had to figure out how I was going to live this life without alcohol. I was having a power outage, not knowing that I had made alcohol my higher power—my solution. When alcohol discontinued its usefulness, I had to replace that solution. It obviously wasn’t working for me anymore.
"God, please help me.” Those words saved my life.
There is no power like that of surrender. Surrender was my epiphany (God made manifest.)
Surrender is not giving up, but putting the focus and trust on something greater than us. When we do that, we actually have access to the greatest source of power in the universe.
God did for me what I could not do for myself.
I realized in my epiphany of surrender, God turned my dilemma into an opportunity—a good chance for advancement or progress!
God had relieved me of the bondage of myself and the obsession to drink. I didn’t have to drink anymore.
If I can do it, so can you. Ask for help—from others and from God.
Try it. It works.
“Since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them.”
