First 12 Days in OA – Friday 5 August 2021

I’ve missed a couple of days from being sick. So here’s the catch up.

9. Higher Power: Again refer to “Frequently asked questions and answers” (pages 18-26).

Write about your understanding of a higher power.

If you struggle with this, are you open to God standing for “G.O.D – Good Orderly Direction”?

Are you able to use this concept to help your recovery? Discuss with your 12 Day Sponsor.

This is a tough one for me. My logic brain clashes with my gut brain, and it’s not easy.

There’s also the issue of not really liking what goes on in so many churches. I don’t like the money side of it, and I don’t like the way the churches seem afraid to criticize anything that is politically correct.

But God, yes, I believe.

Am I willing to trust in God for my recovery? I’d like to say yes, but for various personal reasons, I don’t think God is particularly concerned with me or my wellbeing.

So I’ll trust in the goodwill of the group for now. Maybe I’ll learn to trust God for my recovery. But it will take time.
