There was a time when we ignored trouble, hoping it would go away, or ran from it. But we always were left stuck to it. In AA, we learned that trouble is just a fact of life. We had to learn how to deal with it. Surprisingly, we found that trouble could converted into blessings.
In recovery, nothing is wasted. Through failure, we learn a lesson in humility which is probably needed, painful though it is.
Bill Wilson once wrote:
Great suffering and great love are AA disciplinarians; we need no others.
Pain is the touchstone of spiritual progress. The pains of alcoholism had to come before sobriety and emotional turmoil before serenity.
AA was born out of trouble, the trouble that is the fatal malady of alcoholism. Every single one of us came into AA in trouble, that is why we came.
Tonight, we talk about dealing with trouble in recovery.
