Step 5.5

Step Five states : We admitted to God, ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs

This week’s work is so much more internal in preparing to share your inventory. My hope and prayer is that you already have had your meeting with your sponsor or that it is very soon. I want to give you some things to reflect and meditate on. The words of David, who I told you earlier had quite a moral inventory,

  When I kept it all inside,
      my bones turned to powder,
      my words became daylong groans. 
The pressure never let up;
      all the juices of my life dried up. 
Then I let it all out;
      I said, “I’ll make a clean breast of my failures to God.” 

Suddenly the pressure was gone—
      my guilt dissolved,
      my sin disappeared.

Interestingly, these words were written by Solomon, David’s son,

 If you hide your sins, you will not succeed.
       If you confess and reject them, you will receive mercy.

Reflect on the purposes of this step. Take some time today to talk to God about this step.  After you’re done talking to Him, sit silently with Him and LISTEN for as much time as you can.  Try to take the time to listen to what He whispers to your soul and write it down!
