Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous: Into Action.
Page 87 from last paragraph:-
…“Thy will be done.” We are then in much less danger of excitement, fear, anger, worry, self-pity, or foolish decisions. We become much more efficient. We do not tire so easily, for we are not burning up energy foolishly as we did when we were trying to arrange life to suit ourselves.
We alcoholics are undisciplined. So we let God discipline us in the simple way we have just outlined.
But this is not all. There is action and more action. “Faith without works is dead.” The next chapter is entirely devoted to Step Twelve.
Definition of worry: Its like sitting in a rocking chair, you put in a lot of energy but go nowhere.
Q1. “Thy will be done.” How do you live that?
Give four or five recent things from your life that you have been having an issue with (for example for Stephanie it was exercise) and how you brought these to God. What was God’s answer, your Action Plan and did you get Accountability around it?
Q2a). Look up: moderate. How is moderate for you today in recovery?
b) When you see you are not being moderate what do you do?
Q3. Are you still trying to arrange life to suit yourself?
b) Are you willing to bring this to God?
Q4. “We alcoholics are undisciplined”.
Write about the past and the present in relation to this.
Q5.”Faith without works is dead.” What does this mean to you?
Q6. Stephanie says if she has no accountability about what she is going to do, she believes she is going to do something but then she doesn’t. Can you relate to that?
