AA Midwest

As I look back now over my years in AA, I know what my trouble was. I was too darn sensitive. Also my pipeline to that Higher Power was full of kinks. When I first came into AA I was very bitter against God. Now I wonder how I stayed sober those early years. If I had only turned my life over to God and asked for his help in my troubles and our group's troubles things would have been different and I would have saved many tears. I am writing this in hope that it will help someone, because I have learned that in doing Twelfth Step work we are only instruments of God to be used as he sees fit. A wonderful thought to me, and it makes me feel very humble.
