When I finally asked God to remove those things blocking me
from Him and the sunlight of the Spirit, I embarked on a journey
more glorious than I ever imagined. I experienced a
freedom from those characteristics that had me wrapped up
in myself. Because of this humbling Step, I feel clean.
I am especially aware of this Step
because I'm now able to be useful to God and to my fellows,
I know that He has granted me strength to do His bidding and
has prepared me for anyone, and anything, that comes my way
today. I am truly in His hands, and I give thanks for the
joy that I can be useful today.
