I can’t, He can, I’ll let Him. Unburden yourself and let go. We don’t have to carry all the problems of the day. We don’t have to carry other people’s problems either. Be specific in writing down what you need to let go. Free up some space by letting God handle it. When we hold tightly onto things, God can’t help. Don’t get into the habit of thinking everything is ours to do. Allow this box to be your letting go space.
Twelve Step programs are spiritual in their design. We as Alcoholics/Addicts must turn our attention to something other than human aid and for us to let go of the controls we think we have over people, place, and things. For the most part we can pray, light candles, meditate, or go to spiritual retreats to learn how to turn it over to a Higher Power. However, in recovery we learn the power of pen to paper. Therefore, we have God Boxes. The boxes are a tool to set your prayers, goals, pain, fear, ambitions, ad infinitum. We learn to turn it over by writing it down and putting it in a box. We learn to let go and let God.
