12-Step recovery is designed to produce a spiritual awakening. We start to become aware and recognize the character defects, shortcomings, and attitudes that block us from God. This process not only frees us to become the people we want to be, but it transforms us into humble, positive, healing, and other-centered agents for God.
Today, I will ask God for the awareness to help me recognize when my shortcomings or defects crop up. I will ask for Him to direct my thinking to someone I can help.
