Step Three: Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him. When I was new, everybody was doing Joe and Charlie Big Book Studies. They said that my will was my thoughts and my life was my actions. The Big Book states that we cause our own problems. Later Bill rephrased that to 'most' of our problems in As Bill Sees It. But what about when things happen that we did not cause? Horrible things that no one could have caused and that no one could deserve? Was God doing these things to me? Stay sober long enough and you will see what I mean. This got me to rethinking the Third Step. Now when I say it, my will is me and my life is everything that happens to me. This puts me and my Creator back on the same side. Now both of us are available to deal with things, even the hardest things. I live in cooperation and collaboration with whatever Power put me here.
