I start with a little willingness to trust God and He causes
that willingness to grow. The more willingness I have, the
more trust I gain, and the more trust I gain, the more willingness
I have. My dependence on God grows as my trust in Him grows.
Before I became willing, I depended on myself for all my needs
and I was restricted by my incompleteness. Through my willingness
to depend upon my Higher Power, whom I chose to call God,
all my needs are provided for my Someone Who knows me better
than I know myself--even the needs I may not realize, as well
as the ones yet to come. Only Someone Who knows me that well
could bring me to be myself and to help me fill the need in
someone else that only I am meant to fill. There never will
be another exactly like me. And that is real independence.
