Yes, you can

September 07, 2018

Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
— Step Two

Oh, no. I couldn’t possibly do that.

Well, maybe I could try.

I guess I can do it, but not very well.

I’m doing it, but I’m very, very frightened.

Oh, my. I’m doing it better.

Oops! I made a mistake. Guess I can’t do it, after all.

Oh well. I’ll try again.

See! I’m not doing any better this time.

Okay, I’ll try one more time. Maybe twice.

Hey look! I’m pretty good!

I guess I can do it, after all.

Wow! This is really fun.

There’s a learning curve for anything we want to learn to do. We don’t just know how to do something, and do it well.

One good reason to have a Higher Power is that He or She believes in us, even when we don’t believe in ourselves. We don’t just need to come to believe in God. We need to come to believe in ourselves.

Let your I can’t turn into an I can. Take all the time you need. Learn to enjoy the process of coming to believe you can. Be patient. Accept where you are in your learning curve today.

God, please grant me a humble confidence that allows me to enjoy the gift of life, myself, and all the things you’ve given me to do.
