If I believe that it is hopeless to expect any improvement in my life, I am doubting the power of God. If I believe I have reason for despair, I am confessing personal failure, for I DO have the power to change myself, and nothing can prevent it but my own unwillingness.
Never let me imagine that my satisfaction with life depends on what someone else may do. This is a thinking error I can get rid of in ARP. I can learn to avail myself of the immense, inexhaustible power of God, if I am willing to be continually conscious of God’s nearness.
I am not at the mercy of a cruel or capricious fate, for I have the power to determine what my life will be. I am not alone. I have the power to determine what my life will be. I am not alone. I have the confidence and faith of all ARP to support my efforts, as it is expressed in the loving concern and help of the friends in my group. I am not alone, because God is with me whenever I make myself aware of Him.
