Our Folded Hands

Women helping Women. Reaching out to the Sister who still suffers. Helping each other through the Good times and the Difficult times. To get to the SOBER way of life, One Day at a Time.

Keep it Simple

It’s not dying faith that’s so hard, it’s living up to it.—William Makepeace Thackeray—
We may ask, “Do I have to do an Eighth or Ninth Step?” “Do I really need a sponsor?” “Hmm…can I get by

without going to so many meetings?” Having faith means putting our questions aside. So…what do we do? We work

the program. We accept that those who’ve gone before us were right. We accept the idea that we need others. Faith is knowing that others love and care for us. Faith is also about action. The main way we know that we have faith is by looking at our behavior. Ask yourself this: “Are my actions those of a person with faith?”
Prayer for the Day:  Higher Power, help me remove the questions that get in my way. Help me act like a person with faith.
Action for the Day:  I’ll list four parts of my program that I have faith in, such as, “I believe honesty is important to my sobriety.”
