Spiritual Bankruptcy

Those foxhole prayers and intermittent cries for help don’t constitute the definition of spirituality that’s needed for recovery from a mental, physical, and spiritual malady such as addiction. What is your conception of God? Is He a She? Is it a punishing God? Does it hear your prayers or even care? Most of us have no idea. All we know is we ended up in treatment and that in itself is a miracle. We don’t question why we got a second chance when we feel so unworthy. On a good day we just thank whatever that Higher Power is and try to get another day. Then we try to get some good days and we thank our Higher Power and things start getting better. We begin to see that life isn’t so bad, and then we start to see that actually, it’s pretty amazing, and none of it would have been possible without believing that something had to be helping us, because we know, without a doubt, we can’t do this on our own. We didn’t know we were suffering from spiritual bankruptcy until we saw the difference in our lives through prayer, meditation, and the belief in something greater than ourselves. Spiritual wealth is yours for the taking. All you need to do is be willing.
