When I need to know my Higher Power’s will I need to know that God wants me to know her/his will more than I want to know his/her will. THe rub for me is that I want to know more quickly than HP wants me to know it. I think that is because if I think I know my HP’s will I jump in and try to carry it out right here and right now . The 11th step says pray for a knowledge of his will [ the first part] and the power to carry it out [ The second part]. For me there is often a period of time, maybe a week or a month, after I know his/her before I get the power to carry it out. There is no use for me to want the what of God’s will if I do not want the when of God’s will.
