All of my character defects separate me from God's will.
When I ignore my association with Him I face the world and
my alcoholism alone and must depend on self-reliance.
I have never found security and happiness through self-will
and the only result is a life of fear and discontent.
God provides the path back to Him and to His gift of serenity
and comfort. First, however, I must be willing to acknowledge
my fears and understand their source and power over me.
I frequently ask God to help me understand how I separate
myself from Him.
