Step 12

12. Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to alcoholics and to practice these principles in all our affairs.

“Quietly trust yourself to Christ you Lord and if anybody asks why you believe as you do, be ready to tell him, and do it in a gentle and respectful way.” 1Peter 3:15

Our eyes have been opened!  We seem to see things in a different perspective, as God shines His light upon our daily path.  The 12 Steps have taken us through some hard places but have released us from bondage and restored our lives!  Just when we thought we had no hope, God stepped in when we asked Him to, and did the most impossible miracles of all time!  We become so excited about the changes that we are compelled to share this message of hope with others who are still struggling!  And we put these principles to work in our lives, over and over again.  They WORK – when we work them!
