Need Faith? Many wise Program members say, "Surrender your lack of faith to your Higher Power, and ask for faith."
The author of October 21st reading says, "I know I am powerless, but I feel so helpless." He learned from those before him, that "Powerless does not mean helpless. In fact, it can lead us to a source of enormous power--the power to do God's will."
Were you ever unsure of what God wanted you to do, even after praying for guidance? A loving Sponsor might say, "God doesn't speak in code. As for clarity and then trust that you will get it when the time is right."
When in doubt, I am learning that the answer is to ask. I need to find a way to ask that is not simply pleading, "Please make my dysfunctional person stop criticizing." Today I will meditate for a few minutes on what I need, and then I will ask a Power greater than myself to help me with it.
We may all struggle with our idea of a Higher Power. Have you learned to ask questions that give you answers?
I do not pray for success, I ask for faithfulness. Mother Theresa
