Whenever we ask for this help, we invite God into our lives in a new way….
On the other side of every character defect is a character asset….
We also discover that our character defects can become useful in God’s hands….
[Humility] means that we are not too proud or ashamed to believe that we can be helped….

Our character defects…have caused us a great deal of suffering throughout our lives and prevented us from completely aligning ourselves with our Higher Power’s will for us….
As the reality of our shortcomings sinks in, we can bring them, in humility, to our Higher Power….
If we are fearful, we can gently and courageously allow ourselves to consider the possibility of surrendering our familiar defects, trusting that our Higher Power will not give us more than we can handle…
