My act of Providence, (a manifestation of divine care and
direction), came as I experienced the total bankruptcy of
active alcoholism--everything meaningful in my life was gone.
I telephoned Alcoholics Anonymous and, from that instant,
my life has never been the same. When I reflect on that very
special moment, I know that God was working in my life long
before I was able to acknowledge and accept spiritual concepts.
The glass was put down through this one act of Providence
and my journey into sobriety began. My life continues
to unfold with divine care and direction. Step One,
in which I admitted I was powerless over alcohol, that my
life had become unmanageable, takes on more meaning for me
-- one day at a time -- in the life-saving, life-giving Fellowship
of Alcoholics Anonymous.
