“Why don’t you choose your own conception of God?”

So says Ebby to Bill.

And with that a switch in Bill’s head (heart) is flipped and there is now hope of recovery for alcoholics in the world. Bill then humbly offers himself to God as he understood Him and never took another drink. BB pg 13.

My conception of God changed and continues to change in AA. My God loves me and wants me to “get it”. The God I understand has carried me through many difficult times in sobriety and has kept me sober through them all. The God I understand has given me an amazing life in sobriety.

The God I understand wants me to go make pancakes for my kids.   🙂

    I like this – choose our own conception, and … to be encouraged to think about a choice at all! Even if none of ‘it’ is true, it is the only way of life that has given me peace.

    I have not been blogging but I am still out there, and still sober. would love to email you sometime.

    Take care. Oh, and I made pancakes for my kids today. In fact, it was the first time in 10 years that I made pancakes!
