Letting Go, Letting God

Addicts and alcoholics and their codependents all have trouble letting go, letting God, turning things over to their 'Higher Power,' when they need to. This illustrates it very well:

Broken Toys

As children bring their broken toys, With tears, for us to mend; I brought my broken dreams to God because he was my friend.

But then instead of leaving him in peace to work alone, I hung around and tried to help with ways that were my own.

At last, I snatched them back and cried,

"How could you be so slow?"

"My child," He said, "What could I do?

You never did let go...."

What haven't YOU let go of?
