Action Is The Magic Word

Think straight. Awaken to the holiness of life. No more playing fast and loose with resurrection facts. Ignorance of God is a luxury you can’t afford in times like these. Aren’t you embarrassed that you’ve let this kind of thing go on as long as you have? 1 Corinthians 15:34

During the time I spent in Alcoholics Anonymous I learned how to talk right in the fellowship. How to say the right things, attend the right meetings and mix with the right people to be seen to be doing well. I wasn’t but anyone you asked about me would tell you “Archie, yeah he’s doing well.”

Recovery has nothing to do with what we say and everything to do with how we act and react.

Whilst in A.A. I read a very good book called ‘Sobriety and Beyond’ by Father John Doe. A book I am reading again at the moment There is a chapter in the book headed ‘Action is the Magic Word’ I believe that book is what set me on the path of looking for God’s inclusion in my recovery.

My own experience of recovery is that without His power there is no recovery.
