People in recovery talk a lot about ego. We recognize that our ego's are our downfall. I heard the greatest acronym for ego. E - edging. G- God. O - out. When our ego is in play, we are edging God out of our lives. We are not letting go and letting God, but rather we are clinging to our own wants and pushing God out of the picture all together. It's important for me to remember that when my ego is running the show, God isn't, and that always leads to problems.
