Musings from Murk: Pursuing My Goals

Taken from Murk's AA/NA journal writing regarding steps  1 & 2 of The Steps to Serenity:

Will pursuing my goals harm anyone? and how? No. If I pray for God's will and the power to carry it out and align my will with His, my thinking and actions will change, and through His power all will be well for me and the ones he puts me in contact with.

In the pursuit of what I want, is it likely that I will end up doing something that will adversely affect myself and others? Explain. No. Same answer as above, but only if my decision to turn my will and life over to Him is from deep within myself and not just a surface decision that isn't total.

Will I have to compromise any of my principles to achieve this goal? Not in reality. It may seem so on the surface, but God's will, if I surrender and stay in the right attitude to receive it, is always good and just.
