I wrote a blog post about step 6 which states, “we were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.” I’ve been working a 12 step recovery program for 10+ years now and do the steps over and over many times.
I’m a task-oriented person and while none of the steps are easy, I have an easier time with the steps that have clearly defined action steps.
For example, step 4, “We made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.” Additionally, in Celebrate Recovery, we are given worksheets with a skeleton of how to take our moral inventory. It’s not an easy step to take, but I know what and how to do it.
Steps 6 and 7 are a little more nebulous.
Today, I’ll be digging a bit deeper into step 7 and more specifically what the bible has to say about it
