January 31

Trust

“Just for today I will have faith in someone in NA who believes in me and wants to help me in my recovery.”

Basic Text, p. 93

Learning to trust is a risky proposition. Our past experience as using addicts has taught us that our companions could not be trusted. Most of all, we couldn’t trust ourselves.

Now that we’re in recovery, trust is essential. We need something to hang onto, believe in, and give us hope in our recovery. For some of us, the first thing we can trust is the words of other members sharing in meetings; we feel the truth in their words.

Finding someone we can trust makes it easier to ask for help. And as we grow to trust in their recovery, we learn to trust our own.

––––=––––

Just for today: I will decide to trust someone. I will act on that trust.

    • I feel that at this stage in the game of life, that no one can hurt me as much as I have already hurt myself, therefore, my faith is much larger than my fear. I must live on the faith that my God is forever busy looking out for my best interest. Trust is a gift I give cautiously to humans for they are fallible, as for the “outcome” of things, I must trust in order to grow.
