Recovery from Sex Addiction Step 7Step 7 Recovery from Sex Addiction

Step 7: Humbly asked God to remove our shortcomings.

The principle behind this step is Humility…Humility is the quality of being modest and respectful, it signifies the quality of being subservient, humble; meek and modest in behavior, attitude or spirit; not arrogant or prideful. Big Ouch. This was tough folks. From a life of Pride and Power to a life of Humility. Being humble before God. Being humble before others. Being a Being just learning to Be and not have to do all the time. No performances, just humbly kneeling before God and asking him to remove every defect of character and allowing Him to show me how to be useful to my fellow man.

This step is all about God saying no he won’t remove those defects until I stop acting out on them. When I decide to stop, God will help remove them from my life.  I can’t just stay in my defects of character and expect God to simply remove them. Here is where I have to do my part, not participate in the defect and ask for help removing it.

Step 7 Prayer

My creator I am now willing that you should have all of me, good and bad, I pray that you now remove from me every single defect of character that stands in the way of my usefulness to you and my fellow man. Grant me strength as I go out from here to do your bidding.

Here I ask God to take all of me good and bad and that I need help removing these defects of character so I can be a productive contributing member of society and do god’s will for my life.
