I Surrender... I Quit

Step Three says, "Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him." To turn our will and our lives over to God we have to surrender our lives and quit being in control.

For me, I was at a crossroads, I had to surrender or else - die. Die literally. The way I was drinking I would not last much longer. I was already morally dead, living a life with no boundaries - just destruction.

I had to try something new. Something so different because every other way had failed. That something new was a Higher Power, whom I choose to call God. And I'm glad I made that choice.

My life is far from perfect but I truly believe without His help, it would be a lot worse.


I Surrender... I Quit


I surrender… I quit
through my defeat
maybe… just maybe
a new life can begin

I surrender… I quit
hurt so many along the way
maybe… just maybe
a ray of hope can shine in

I surrender… I quit
been drunk for so long
maybe… just maybe
I can live without

I surrender… I quit
tears will never wash away the pain
maybe… just maybe
someday maybe you’ll forgive

I surrender… I quit
with my Higher Power’s help
maybe… just maybe
I’ll stay sober

I surrender… I quit
somehow… someway
maybe… just maybe
I can forgive myself

I surrender… I quit
I now have a Friend
maybe… no… wait
I know I can trust Him

Thank God,
I surrendered… I quit

Sherry Heim 2/26/2007 Good for you, Dave!! Sometimes we are powerless to help ourselves and it is in the realization of that and the acceptance of the higher power that we are able to find healing strength.
