Life on life’s terms. It’s easy to let up on the spiritual side of the program, specifically when we feel like we are juggling more plates than we can hold. This box is for those extra plates. We expect too much out of ourselves, and wind-up controlling situations, which put us in a “life’s hard” mentality. Give your Higher Power that control. Release the extra plates to prayer.
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.
