“There is a solution. Almost none of us liked the self-searching, the leveling of our pride, the confession of shortcomings which the process requires for its successful consummation.” (Big Book, Page 25) Most of us do not enjoy writing inventory, looking at our character defects, or making amends to people we have harmed. It’s uncomfortable! So, is the solution to our discomfort more discomfort? Yes! We must walk through some discomfort if we want to grow closer to God and experience true freedom. The enemy of all of us is “relief.” Often, we will settle for relief, confusing it with freedom, only to experience that same pain or discomfort again, and again, and again.
Today, I will ask God to help me be willing to get uncomfortable. I will ask my Higher Power for help with experiencing a deeper level of awakening and a deeper relationship with Him.
