"It is a spiritual axiom that every time we are disturbed, no matter what the cause, there is something wrong with us." AA12&12
"And we have ceased fighting anything or anyone, even alcohol [i.e. lust]" AABB
It is so easy for me to become disturbed. It is so easy to then start to fight against whatever it is I believe is the cause of that disturbance.
But just as surrender works on the problems that brought me to SA, so does it on all the other disturbances in my life. And I'm glad it does, or all of these other things would combine to drive me right back to lust - my drug of choice.
No, the world does not have to be the way I want it. No, I'm am not god who always knows what is best for me and others. No, instead I think I'll just take a deep breath, exhale a conscious prayer to God of surrender of whatever it is that is disturbing me, and ask him for the strength to go on and do His will in the next moment.
