Endigar 655 ~ “I Am a Miracle”

From the Daily Reflections of January 1;

The central fact of our lives today is the absolute certainty that our Creator has entered into our hearts and lives in a way which is indeed miraculous. He has commenced to accomplish those things for us which we could never do by ourselves.   (Alcoholics Anonymous, page 25)

This truly is a fact in my life today, and a real miracle. I always believed in God, but could never put that belief meaningfully into my life. Today, because of Alcoholics Anonymous, I now trust and rely on God, as I understand Him; I am sober today because of that! Learning to trust and rely on God was something I could never have done alone. I now believe in miracles because I am one!





A miracle is defined in Merriam-Webster as a surprising and welcome event that is not explicable by natural or scientific laws and is therefore considered to be the work of a divine agency.  Somewhere along the way it became natural for me to face life intoxicated with alcohol.  The scientific-medical community in all their achievements had one word for the alcoholic;  hopeless.   The irresistible laws of nature and man where interrupted and I stopped drinking and started living.  I developed a powerfully simple and pragmatic faith in a Higher Power that required no name or doctrinal hoops to love me.  My life has become that “surprising and welcome” event that I must attribute to my God doing for me what I absolutely could not do for myself.  Yes, I am a miracle.
