Krazy, I believe that we are all God's children and that he loves us unconditionally, no matter what we have done or how unlovable we feel.
I turned my back on God for many years, and yet with one prayer I knew that he never turned his back on me.
Jesus didn't preach to the saints, he took his message to those who needed it most, people like you and me.
I truly believe that it's as simple as "ask, and you shall receive; knock and the door will open". When we take one step toward God, God takes 100 steps toward us. All we have to do is reach out and ask.
Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.

If he "counted iniquities" -- who could stand?
We're all worth it to God. He meets us more than halfway, and like the Big Book says -- "doesn't make too harsh of terms with those who seek Him"

As a mother, I would never turn my back on my children. They may make many mistakes, they may make tremdous mistakes ... they may turn their backs to me ... but my children will always be my children. I will always love them.
I have seen the same from my own mother. My sister refuses to even talk to her, and yet, she is always asking about her, if she is ok, and longing for her to return.
My HP is also my parent. My HP would not turn a back to me any more then I would to my children. Even when I thought I wasnt worth loving, my HP called me home.
It's pretty amazing to forgive yourself enough to see that love.

I eel the only way to recovery is want it YOURSELF .You are your own HP. We can wonder all we like about god an if he exists, an will he help us but its just unknowable. We will never really know unless the lord appears in his ull glory in front of us and even if that happened nobody would ever believe..noone believes meta physical stuff esp not from addicts, they would say you were stoned/had a fever/were developing schizophrenia.
Handing over problems to god...that seems such a cop out to me... whats going to happen ater you did that..you go on using trusting gods gonna mend you? thats so not gonns happen. I believe only you can mend you. you have too access the higher part of yourself...yoga an meditation is great way to do this.Why not read a ouple of books on it...at least you know you are real(okay this couldv v v be philosphially debated) but its better than belieing in something that might/might not be there. you are theonly person who an help you, just my view, europeans are not as into God as americans though my beliefs like everyones are probably just cultural conditioning....I know, it just seem sensible to trust your self. We are not powerless.we just need to acess our power.
