Beside Restful Waters

“It doesn’t matter where or how you start, surrendering to God is a process. One day you wake up and you are no longer at the beginning.” -Gates and Kenison: Meditations from the Mat

I have met a lot of folks on our recovery path who identify with the mystery spoken in the statement above. Most of us didn’t have a clue as to how we start our sobriety. Personally, I don’t recall a specific day or date when I made a request for help. I remember a period of time when I felt like life made no sense. I seemed to be totally disconnected from anything resembling normalcy. I lived from one lie to the next.
