Our Mind is the problem

These observations would be academic and pointless if our friend never took the first drink, thereby setting the terrible cycle in motion. Therefore, the main problem of the alcoholic centers in his mind, rather than in his body.   Alcoholics Anonymous  pg 23

Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.     Romans 12:2 NIV

Father, I thank you for my sobriety.  I thank you for the opportunity to renew my mind with your Word and to learn to align my thoughts with your thoughts. I pray that as I renew my mind that I will come to know your will and I will walk pleasing to you.   In Jesus Name, Amen.

  1. Hey I didn’t think anyone else read that page but me, LOL. Our mind is the number one offender before and after soberity. Step 2, Came to believe that a power greater than ourseleve COULD restore us to sanity. I have come to know, I was never in charge then or now, go to God daily and hand over my life and MIND, ask for healing everyday to continue to walk the path God has in store for me. And then only through His grace will I have a Blessed and sober day. God Bless
