Taken from Murk's AA/NA journal writing regarding steps 1 -3 of The Steps to Serenity:
How does the third step allow me to build on the surrender I've developed in steps one and two? By taking practical action on a daily basis of turning it over to God, not using, and taking suggestions.
In what ways have I demonstrated willingness in my recovery so far? Not picking up first, going to meetings on a regular basis, taking suggestions, honestly looking at suggestions I don't take and praying about them, fulfilling commitments of service, building a recovery network in all aspects of my life - work, homelife, church, & play - and using this network.
