The following ideas have helped me.
-If fear is horribly limiting then courage is wonderfully fulfilling
-My Higher Power (HP) is always available to me so I am more willing to take risks.
– I am certainly glad I never have to pray God in from Chicago.
-My HP never asks me to do something that is beyond my ability.
– My HP never asked me to do two things at once.Therefore, If I feel I have 100 things to do at the same time.I can safely put 99 of the 100 things on my mind into my HP’s hands and give full attention doing the next indicated thing.
-Sometimes doing the next indicated thing seems way beyond my view of myself. That is because I am asking myself, “Can George Caywood do this thing?” The answer is seldom yes. Can George Caywood with HP’s help do this thing. The answer has to always be yes. George Caywood without God is a figment of my imagination like Mickey Mouse. God is now and always has and always will be with me.
-In program we are always talking about powerlessness. In fact the program gives me enormous power.When I am doing my best to do things God’s way I have all heaven and earth on my side.
-If I owned a new red Mustang Convertible that I can not start I will never experience it’s power. Maybe that the reason it won’t run is I am using water as fuel. The car was made to run on gas not water. I soon as I clear out the the water from its’s systems and put gas in it the car, the car will be powerful and fun.
-The water in thee car corresponds to myself efforts and the gas corresponds to God’s power.
-Self condemnation is the brakes on the car. Love for myself, God and other people is the accelerator.
-Human guilt and shame acts like the brakes on the car. If I am always driving with the brakes on I will get nowhere. The accelerator is love.
-I see enormous love in the eyes of the many people that love me.
