Step 7 of the 12 steps is:
Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.
Step 7 is a transformational process that allows us to ask God to help us to begin to remove our shortcomings that we have spent the previous six steps identifying.
Joe Herzanek continues his discussion of the 12 steps and describes how to approach Step 7 and to continue on the road to addiction recovery.

You ever get the fuck it's, you know the fuck it's, fuck this, fuck that. Well how about the positive spin on fuck it!
God grant me the serenity to let this go.
Followed by a spiritual reading.
12 Stepology is the study of the 12 steps. It all started for me in AA / NA then Ala-non mixed with some ACOA and a little OA for dessert. No pun intended. I use the 12 steps in all aspects of my life and have found the happiness I was looking for in The Drink / The Drug / The Person / The Food / Oh! did I mention Sex.
So I share the 12 Steps, how they work in my life, how ego does not work in my life. The Highs, The Lows,The In Betweens. Other words the path in my recovery to happiness. Have I arrived, Hell! No! But I am on the right path and the journey has improved. My Goal is to share my Experience,Strenth and Hope with as many Peeps possible.
Let The Fun Begin!
This book is directed to the individuals without any experience of Twelve Step recovery, the seasoned veteran of Twelve Steps, as well as the experienced mental-health professional. The Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous have helped countless addicts. This healing process is based upon spiritual principles that speak to the human spirit. If you practice them, you will experience physical and spiritual growth, and emotional stability.
Rivka Edery is a social worker who is dedicated to helping survivors of trauma to recover healthy lives. Her book explains the invisible cord underlying the problems resulting from unresolved trauma which dramatically hinder a person trying to live a satisfying life. She clearly illustrates the therapeutic value of incorporating spirituality as part of a survivor’s recovery process. This discussion is useful to both the survivor and the mental health professional.
When I first met Adam, it was not obvious why he came to me for help with the Twelve Steps. From a superficial look at his life he appeared to have every reason to be a trusting person. He described his successful love-relationship, healthy and smart children, a genuine love for his work, and a satisfying social life. His life would be the envy of most people, with a bank account, and external factors that most people dream of. Unlike many people who turn to the Twelve Steps because of addictive patterns of behavior in their lives, Adam turned to the Twelve Steps because a friend had urged him to seek help using spiritual principles that have helped countless others.
Most survivors, unless they are in a crisis, do not put much thought into what happened; the people, places, things, and reactions to events that have long-shaped their life. But if you have not yet taken a look at what traumata shaped your personality, behaviors, fears, and ways of responding in life, Step Four is a good opportunity to stop and think about it. Perhaps you have reached the day when you realize that you are not living your life as you really want to. Perhaps you feel a deep inner longing for healthy, secure attachment, love and a more kind relationship with yourself. You may experience a longing for life as you were told it was supposed to be but you have no evidence that you are living such a life.
At first glance, you may feel absolutely resistant when you look at this step. How can I let someone find out about me? You may feel fear, dread, anticipation of rejection and humiliation if anyone knows of your past or “secrets”. Perhaps you may feel knots and tangles in your body with no vision or understanding as to how to “untangle” those knots. “Fearlessly” writing an inventory takes enough energy, and trips your trigger wires badly enough – now you have to actually share this with someone. When I got ready to share my inventory with my beloved therapist, I was pleasantly surprised when I discovered that this process became the validation I had always longed for.
