The Role Play

🔥 The Role Play

How did I end up in the 12 Step program?…

It certainly was not through my own choice I can assure you…

At the time there was no place on earth I would rather not be…

God obviously had a new role for me to play in life…

In the rooms of Alcoholics Anonymous I have had a revolutionary internal experience and have come to know God in ways I would never have dreamed…

“We are in the world to play the role He assigns. Just to the extent that we do as we think He would have us, and humbly rely on Him, does He enable us to match calamity with serenity” – The Big Book P68

Up until that moment when God chose me, I was a tornado roaring through the lives of those around me…

Then I came across a prayer in the middle of the fear inventory…

“Perhaps there is a better way” – “Living on the basis of trusting and relying upon God” This would empower me to march calamity with serenity…

I am in this world to play the role that God assigns me…

That is my life purpose and nothing else.

In that role that God assigns me there is a lot of work ahead…

God’s work…

To be of maximum use to him and others…

What an incredible way to live!

What role has God assigned you to play?

Or do you still role play your own way?

Paul
