Step 8: Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all.

A Vision For You

We realize that we only know a little.  God will constantly disclose more to you and to us. Ask Him in your morning meditation what you can do each day for the man who is still sick. The answers will come, if your own hose is in order. But you obviously cannot transmit something you haven’t got. See to it that your relationship with Him is right, and great things will come to pass for you and countless others. This is a great fact for us.

Abandon yourself to God as you understand God. Admit your faults to Him and to your fellows. Clear away the wreckage of your past. Give freely of what you find and join us. We shall be with you in the fellowship of the Spirit, and you will surely meet some of us as you trudge the road of happy destiny.

May God Bless you and keep you until then.  (Big Book p164)
