During the month of January we are focusing on Step Four.
Made a searching a fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
Let us examine our ways and test them, and let us return to the Lord. – Lamentations 3:40
Last Saturday we watched a video from the National Association for Christian Recovery on the fear inventory. If you missed it or would like to watch again, here is the link to the video:
The NACR also has another Step Four video on the resentment inventory. This one is a bit longer and can be found at the link below.
The Step Four prayer from last week, also courtesy of the NACR:
I am afraid.
I have been afraid for a long time.
I don’t know what the future holds.
I can’t control it.
Sometimes when I am afraid, I don’t want to feel anything.
See the problem?
I need help.
Give me the patience and courage
to do a full inventory of my fears.
Help me to see with clarity
what has been getting in the way
of living a sane and sober life.
