"We find that no one need have difficulty with the spirituality of the program. Willingness, honesty and open-mindedness are the essentials of recovery. But these are indispensable." Big book of A.A. (Page 568)
Part of me wants to ask..."Hey God! Will there ever be a time when this process is over...this seeing the "real" me, I mean?" But the answer that usually comes back to me is a loving, but resounding "No!". Reckon why this is? Because the longer I walk with God, the more aware I am of His holiness. The more aware I am of His righteousness. This awareness of His holy perfection only illuminates my own heart. I see not just the presence of bitterness or jealousy, anger or unforgiveness....but I also see the potential that my heart is capable of producing if I allow my flesh to be involved in my daily decisions. Such is why I need discipline in my life to keep me focused on God.
