Have you ever taken the time to observe a child and see how easily they trust their parents to provide love, attention, care, and concern for their wellbeing? As we go through life, we begin to lose that childlike faith. We become tainted by the world and all of its hardships. By the time we arrive in recovery, we have been hardened by the consequences of our past, be them financial, physical, mental, or emotional. Through the 12-Steps we begin to build a connection to God and establish that childlike faith we once had. We re-discover that God will provide for all of our needs, regardless of our past transgressions.
Today I will embrace my childlike faith. I will know that I am a loving child of God.
