361 A Way Out

361 A Way Out

One of the names Bill W gave thought to for the Big Book was "A Way Out". For many of us that title fit us to a tee. In a "short" time in AA I came to believe there was a way out. I did not understand how but I saw other AA members who seem to have found that way. Working the Program the best we can does cause us to have a Spiritual Awakening. That is we awaken to a new level of consciousness where we can intuitive know what our next move is. Our defects and feelings of being inadequate turns out to be opportunities to let our Higher Power do for us what we cannot do. Each time I let go and let our Father have His Way my Spiritual Awakening becomes more Real. When I am disappointed in myself or others I am reminded that I am not letting Him do His Job. He has His ways of remaining anonymous. I pray He will break His anonymity more often. At times my faith in His Love, His grace and His Mercy takes more courage and belief in the unseen than I have. I guess I should let Him tend to that also. Sometimes what appears to be a "bad break" or a disappointment turns out to be just what I needed. At times what I thought was "bad news" turned out to be an anonymous visit from the Boss. Let me remember He is always Present within each of us. Come let us love one another. Thy Love be done.
