“F.E.A.R. can stand for ‘Forgetting Everything’s All Right’.” – Heard from Noel at an AA meeting in Pacific Palisades
I had the opportunity to share at a meeting last night about the idea of faith versus God. I mentioned that for some of us the word “God” is a little bit too much to handle at the beginning of our recovery, so I generally encourage people instead to consider just having faith. When I explain what faith is to me, I say that it’s saying, hearing and believing the words “Everything’s gonna be OK.” On the other hand, when I’m in fear, I’m saying, hearing and believing “No it’s not.” It’s only when I actively choose to listen only to the words of faith, rather than fear, that ILML!
