I’m beginning to see that trusting my Higher Power underlies learning to trust in all areas of my life. I’m learning that turning it over to my Higher Power and surrendering my will, allows me to be open to finding the solution. This is particularly true when I’m struggling in my relationship with my partner. It has never failed that after surrendering, within a short period of time there seems to be something changing. I often don’t know whether the change is in me or my partner or both of us, but changes happen, and then healing starts. Surrendering to my Higher Power is working for me. Turning my will and my life over to my Higher Power is the only tool I know that has saved me at times when I was at my lowest and didn’t know where to turn next.
