What if we knew for certain that everything we’re worried about today will work out fine?
What if . . . we had a guarantee that the problem bothering us would be worked out in the most perfect way, and at the best possible time? Furthermore, what if we knew that three years from now we’d be grateful for that problem, and its solution?
What if . . . we knew that even our worst fear would work out for the best?
What if . . . we had a guarantee that everything that’s happening, and has happened, in our life was meant to be, planned just for us, and in our best interest?
What if . . . we had a guarantee that the people we love are experiencing exactly what they need in order to become who they’re intended to become? Further, what if we had a guarantee that others can be responsible for themselves, and we don’t have to control or take responsibility for them?
What if . . . we knew the future was going to be good, and we would have an abundance of resources and guidance to handle whatever comes our way?
What if . . . we knew everything was okay, and we didn’t have to worry about a thing? What would we do then?
We’d be free to let go and enjoy life.
Today, I will know that I don’t have to worry about anything. If I do worry, I will do it with the understanding that I am choosing to worry, and it is not necessary.
Everything always works out the way it’s supposed to. Prior to getting sober and prior to working the steps, I always had to be in control. I thought that it was up to me to make things happen the way that I wanted them to happen. I have learned through the 12-step program that I don’t need to be in control. I have learned to have faith. I have learned to have faith in my Higher Power and faith that everything will work out. And things always do end up working out much better than if I was in control. Being in control is exhausting and overwhelming. Being in control means that I am consumed with thinking about the future. If I just do the next indicated thing, surrender and trust my Higher Power, and let things play out, there is no need to worry. This also frees me up to be available to the present moment.
