Coming to terms with powerlessness is never easy. We may be powerless over an addiction, a mental health disorder, or a situation in our life that is not “going according to plan.” Acknowledging our powerlessness and surrendering to the reality of these circumstances can open the door to change. When we recognize our powerlessness, we give ourselves the opportunity to seek a Power greater than ourselves.
Today, I will acknowledge my powerlessness. I will stop trying to control the world around me and surrender to something greater.
