Remember . . .
You can use your imagination to substitute God for your Qualifier. God is available all the time. God is prompt and reliable. God never abandons us. God is good. He/She is an upgrade from our past choices.
When I fell in love with my Higher Power, I was embarrassed at first. Then I grew to like it. I listened to the old song, "Looking for love in all the wrong faces. Looking for love in all the wrong places."
I was so filled with joy that I contemplated becoming a nun. LOL Eventually, the honeymoon was over, I came down to earth, and I met my husband Frank. We were happy, but my joy came from my relationship with God, and it kept me from going overboard with Frank.
Over the years, God has been a stand-in for all those I had lost or was waiting to find: my father, mother, sister, daughter, brother, counselor, partner, companion, and best friend.
A personal, intimate, relationship with our Higher Power is the spiritual underpinnings of 12-Step programs.
How it Works
At some point, we became powerless over our love addiction. No human power could have relieved us of our love addiction. God could and would if sought.
