How do you surrender your will and your life to God? In the 12 step programs you make a decision. It’s like you make a decision whether or not you’ll attend the dance or not. If you go, you’ll be in the flow of the excitement of all that happens, from the time you get ready, leave the house and arrive at the dance. And then you’ll sweep in and mix and mingle and feel wonderful in your new dress and your dance partners pay you a lot of attention and you are the belle of the ball. That’s exactly what it’s like to surrender.

Today I surrender by admitting I can’t do this life alone. That I need help and direction from my Higher Power and in the dance, I allow Him to lead.
