Step One thought and scripture – Day 6.
Step One in Alcoholics Anonymous
Admitted we were powerless over alcohol—that our lives had become unmanageable.
Step One in Living Free
I now see [admit] that I, of myself, am powerless, unable to control [manage] my life by myself.
Be content wherever you are in your life. Realize it is not by your power or will, but it is God who we need to look to in every circumstance of life. He gives us the power to press through whatever we are facing.
New Living Translation (NLT)
12 I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is with a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little. 13 For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.
