When I first got sober, one of the most powerful blessings that I stumbled onto was making myself available. As many of you know, when I turned my life over to God, God relieved me of the obsession and compulsion to drink. And as I sought to simply do His will, there were several changes that I sensed that God was leading me to make. I enrolled in school part-time. I changed jobs. I began to form new friendships who had similar goals as me: staying sober and seeking a deeper connection to God.

Often I would have hours of time between classes before I would go to work in the evenings delivering pizzas. This allowed me to simply wander as the peregrine often did. Sometimes I would hang out with people from Campus Crusade. I would go to a noon prayer gathering on campus where I learned to meditate and pray. Sometimes I would journey through Dayton to meet up with some other recovering alcoholics. And it was through these times that I learned to hear and do God’s voice. I first made myself available. I intentionally and with conscious effort sought what it was that God was doing and what I sensed that God was beckoning me to do.
