Step Seven

“Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.”

Featured Quote:

“The whole emphasis of Step Seven is on humility. It is really saying to us that we now ought to be willing to try humility in seeking the removal of our other shortcomings just as we did when we admitted we were powerless over alcohol, and came to believe that a power Greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.” – 12&12, p.76
