My Higher Power’s Hands

In my mind, I picture my Higher Power’s hands. One by one, I place my problems and worries, my joy and my gratitude, into those hands, and finally, I climb in too. ~ Family Groups, Al-Anon. Courage to Change—One Day at a Time in Al‑Anon II (Kindle Locations 4333-4334). Al-Anon Family Groups.

It beats a God box
though those have value.
Putting your concerns, your hopes,
your gratitude, your agitation
not into a decorated oatmeal box
but directly into the hands of God
could not help but create a peaceful heart.
But then to visualize climbing in as well
cannot help but stamp on your heart
the truth of your surrender!
