Poems of a Recovering Addict: I surrender to you, Lord

I will always remember my first meeting. The topic of the meeting was surrender. I remember sharing that I didn’t know how to surrender completely, that I’ve only surrendered a small percentage of myself. 

I know that’s why I was unable to stay sober at that time. I was still depending on my own willpower. It wasn’t until I surrendered my drinking and drug problem over to my higher power that I was able to stay sober. Each day I wake up and surrender my will to the God of my understanding and He keeps me sober. 

“Stuck in the stage

Of disloyalty 

Because I was unable

To give my all the thee

But with your guidance 

I will find my way

And the strength

To get through each and every day

For it was you 

That put the fight in my soul

And gave me the desire to

Again be whole

Lord, on this day

I surrender to you

Please will you light my path

And show me just what to do”
