One of the cornerstones of Alcoholics Anonymous' effectiveness is the freedom it offers to choose your own conception of a Higher Power. The phrase "God as we understood Him" is an invitation to discover a personal relationship with your connection to Divine Mystery. It's a lifelong journey in my opinion. Once we've begun to "come to believe", we're encouraged to turn our will and life over to the care of our Higher Power.
 
The subject of God's Will is referenced directly in Steps 3 and 11. What does that mean? It's another individual invitation to inquire within and discover your own ever-evolving idea of understanding. My hope with this meditation is to offer my own experience along with a personal story and some questions for reflection that help you grow in recovery. 
 
Practicing these steps with a willingness to be "an instrument of Thy peace" as the prayer of St Francis says - has been worth the effort. Today I've transitioned my perspective from "God's Will" as instructions or directions to a notion of "God's Desire" for me to grow into my best self through simple loving living. The choice is always mine and I imagine God as the ultimate Friend.
 
Thanks for meditating with me.
