A NEW DIRECTION
Our human resources, as marshalled by the will, were not sufficient;
they failed utterly. . . Every day is a day when we must carry the
vision of God’s will into all our activities.
ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, p.45,85
I hear talk of the “weak-willed” alcoholic, but I am one of the
strongest-willed people on earth! I now know that my incredible
strength of will is not enough to save my life. My problem is not one of
“weakness,” but rather of direction. When I, without falsely
diminishing myself, accept my honest limitations and turn to God’s
guidance, my worst faults become my greatest assets. My strong will,
rightly directed, keeps me working until the promises of the program
become my daily reality.
