Daily reading for November 28 from “As If I Was In Your Office…”

The Serenity Prayer - “Not our will but the will of others” Fr. Paul Retreat – November 2009.

“Can you help me?” is all that it takes. For the first time in our lives since we were young the alcoholic admits that he or she needs help. That is all it takes now to maintain recovery. To have the willingness to let others love me, care for me, and be there for me. We do not do it alone but in conjunction with somebody else. At times we can still evade the questions whether we have been here twenty years.

Generally it is the small things that can knock us down, confuse us, whether we lose our temper or go into a spin. We have got to do something about them. Sometimes just listening or sharing and letting others be part of our lives is important. Then we can be part of their lives because we are a good listener. For the alcoholic sometimes this is the way we show others that we are friendly, that this person is important, and this person means something to us.

My commitment today is to do the will of others.

Daily reading for November 27 from “As If I Was In Your Office…”

The Serenity Prayer - “Wisdom” Fr. Paul Retreat – November 2009.

Wisdom comes from love not intelligence. Even in the gifts of the Holy Spirit wisdom is number one. We get wisdom from love. Love gives us the ability to have the courage to ask for help and to surrender our self-will, our ideas, our pride and our defects and be ready to have God remove those defects. To ask for help is the most courageous thing to do and it took courage for us to ask for help. We needed the willingness to let God and others show us and help us to the point that we would do whatever they wanted us to do. Love gave us the ability to ask for help and to let people who love and care for us, help us. That is like a miracle for the alcoholic. Before recovery people were the enemy. We thought that they caused our problems. The disease blamed others. We had to give up our old ideas and our self-will, and submit to the love that others had. We needed to surrender our disease, pride, resentments and self-pity and to let go and let love take place in our lives. That is wisdom.

My commitment today is to allow wisdom into my life through love.

As #nationaladdictionawarenessweek concludes, it is a reminder that recovery is possible! Ask Sam. Her story is an excellent example of how treatment and support can lead to recovery.

Featured Testimonial

Not only did the people at Brentwood change my son, but they changed me as a mother. It allowed me to develop an amazing relationship with my son. When we found Brentwood, I was as much in need of help as my son was. I could not have done this journey without help. Without Brentwood’s help!

By coming to Family Support meetings with an open heart, I found a support system like no others. Brentwood staff have continued to work with my son in his Recovery while I worked my own program. This has allowed us to celebrate and grow in recovery as a family. I will be forever grateful to Brentwood!
