Before miracle workers are ready to undertake their function in this world, it is essential that they fully understand the fear of release. Otherwise they may unwittingly foster the belief that release is imprisonment, a belief that is already very prevalent. T-2.V.1:1-2
The miracle worker gives up their willfulness so that the will of God can take over their lives. This turning it over is very frightening for the immature. They believe that turning their willfulness over to the will of God will capture them against their own will not recognizing that their will and God’s will can be One.
In Alcoholics Anonymous it is suggested, in step three, that we make a decision to turn our will over to God’s will for us.
In Unitarian Universalism we covenant together to affirm and promote a free and responsible search for truth and meaning which may require us to give up our own prejudices, biases, and need to be right. This creates great insecurity, guilt, and shame sometimes. When we stubbornly cling to what we believe is right, the healing power of the miracle eludes us.
Today, it is suggested that we face up to and bravely admit our fears about losing control. If you want to hear God laugh, tell God your plans.
