This little box can be for on the go, or something to keep on your desk without notice. This treasure can be for your intentions throughout the day. It can also be for those times when you run into someone, and they are having a bad day and you want to remember their name for prayer. Use it for those times when you just need to put that one thing on paper and hand it over to your Higher Power. Don’t let the small stuff get in the way, it’s all small stuff at the end of day!!
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.
