The bleeding will end when you stop cutting yourself. I know that I didn't stay sober -- to bleed to death or to endure a lifetime of pain.
One of my favorite sentences in the Big Book, and I use it often, as a guide for my life and for making decisions is on page 133. "We are sure God wants us to be happy, joyous, and free."
What God wants IS God's will, isn't it? That, to me means:
I am SURE that God's will for me is: to be happy, joyous and free.
It doesn't say "I think." And, it doesn't say "I hope". And, it doesn't say "I wonder if..." It says we are SURE. We positively KNOW. There is no doubt about it! "We are sure God wants us to be happy, joyous, and free."
For those that think God wants them to bleed and continue to bleed... they should read the sentences that follows it...
"We cannot subscribe to the belief that this life is a vale of tears, though it once was just that for many of us. But it is clear that we made our
own misery. God didnâ€™t do it. Avoid then, the deliberate manufacture of misery, but if trouble comes, cheerfully capitalize it as an opportunity to demonstrate His omnipotence."
Are we deliberately manufacturing misery in our lives... assuming that God's will for us is: misery and bleeding?
Are we living in misery... WAITING FOR GOD to change it?
Or... is it clear, yet... that we are CONTINUING to manufacture misery in our lives by not taking the reins and the actions to manufacture "happy, joyous and free."
God does not make our misery and God will not stop the bleeding when we continue to sit around cutting ourselves.
Sobriety gives me choices and options in Life. That's what God intended for me -- to have options and choices. And, I am SURE that God wants me to exercise options, choices and decisions and take actions that lead to Me BEING "Happy, joyous and free."
God can't and won't do it for me. And, I can't do it for someone else. I can only do it for me -- and only they can do it for them.
