I would like to say that I found my sponsor one nite at a meeting I attend regularly. I had been sober about 8 months at the time and I was not even thinking of a sponsor or sponsorship until this guy, who had never been to the meeting before, raised his hand to be a sponsor. I then thought I have decided to turn my thinking and my actions over to God as I understand him, I am going to ask this guy to sponsor me. He did not know me and I did not know him. Come to find out he was not going to raise his hand, but his wife suggested he raise it. The more I trust God as I understand him the more I receive whats best for me. Through trusting God as I understand him, my sponsor, and, the other suggested tools of recovery I am sober, having a personality change, and growing toward a spiritual awakening. I believe I study, process, and live the program of action not go through it.
