Exploring Step Three: I

AA3: Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of my God, as we understand God.

CA3: Every day, I surrender my free will over to God.

1704 The human person participates in the light and power of the divine Spirit.  By his reason, he is capable of understanding the order of things established by the Creator.  By free will, he is capable of directing himself toward his true good.  He finds his perfection “in seeking and loving what is true and good.”
Life in Christ, The Catechism of the Catholic Church, #1704

God gave me free will.  I can choose the patch to peace or the path to destruction.  Sometimes I choose the path to peace-eventually.  Postponing my arrival by making self-serving decisions, self-seeking pleasure and avoiding pain, discomfort, responsibility but not quite choosing destruction.  Is there a middle way—I believe there IS a middle way.  But the middle way is not the path to peace, to the light.  The middle way is more of being lost without GPS or compass, not intending to go the wrong way necessarily but certainly not being able to go the right way home.
