5 Step Blessing


  1. Accept your own helplessness in your spiritual life. Allow it to be okay not to be in control, but to be open to receive.


  1. Be sorrowful for your missteps. Be sincerely sorrowful allows the chains to be cut so that you are not tempted to go back to old lifestyles.


  1. Be willing to see yourself as you really are. Be aware of yourself so that if you are given a correction, you can see it and make the correction without defensiveness or denial.


  1. Be hungry to do righteous things, to be merciful, caring, and compassionate for others. Compassion is not personal, it’s not about you. It’s about others.


  1. Be pure of heart to be peaceful so you can bring peace to others. Allow yourself to be blessed with peace so you can bring peace to others.
