These Twelve Steps based on the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous, given to me by the Holy Spirit are the Twelve Steps I followed to achieve and maintain sobriety on a daily basis.
- I admit that my life is a mess and I am out of control.
- I believe God exists, that he cares about me and He can help me to regain control of my life.
- I am making a decision to let God help me change and commit to working with Him to do so.
- In order to help me change, I will investigate and record with God’s help – my sinful habits and attitudes.
- On completion of my list of sinful habits, I will confess them to God and to someone that I trust.
- After discovering my sinful habits and attitudes and confessing them, I am now willing to let God change me.
- Through the acknowledgment of God’s supreme power, I humbly ask Him to help me change my sinful habits and attitudes.
- As part of the process of change, I will identify and record everyone I have harmed and through prayer become willing to make restitution to them.
- Having identified the people, I have harmed, I will now go and make restitution to them. Unless to do is going to cause them or other pain or suffering.
- Now that I am in the process of change, I will check myself daily to make sure I am not slipping back into my old ways and if I am, I will take steps to rectify it.
- In order to discover God’s purpose in my life, implement it and to improve my relationship with Him, I will spend time daily in prayer, reading the Bible and meditating on it.
- Having gone through these steps and discovering the importance of an individual relationship with God through Jesus, I will try to live according to His principles and to lead others to a personal relationship with Him.
