I was reminded at my morning meeting that the big book is loaded with promises. Every step has a declaration of hope and continued pursuit of peace and sanity. In the real world, a promise means that some action will take place, after the oath, that will bring about the results. Since this spiritual program is backward to how I’ve experienced life before I joined up, these promises materialize before I even know them. They are like an unveiling that happens as the result of taking these steps. This is part of the spiritual awakening, results that come gradually through applying spiritual principles to my situations and getting free from the bondage of self. It is only in quiet retrospection that I am able to “connect the dots” and form a more precise “God Picture”. What a promise in itself to keep going. God will help us all with the approach and the connection. He meets all of us on whatever Broad Highway we’re traveling.
