Are you still having trouble giving it over to a God of your understanding? Do you not know what to pray for or about? This box is perfect. There is nothing but a program needed. Put the slogans in your box. Do you feel like you’re doing too much? Easy does it, put it in the box. Are you holding onto some thoughts that keep spinning around? Write, turn it over or let it go, put it in the box. There are plenty of sayings out there. This is a good way to send your thoughts out of you and out into the universe.
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.
