In Step 3 we are making a decision to turn our will and life over to the care of God as we understand him. In other words, are you ready to think and act differently? In Step 3, we’ve already decided we need help and to ask for it. But what does it mean to turn our life over to the care of God? You can find that care in your peers, your counselor or your therapist. Care means love. No matter what religion you practice, or if you don’t practice any religion at all, you can find the care of God in recovery.
