Whether or not you are familiar with 12-step programs like Alcoholics Anonymous, you are probably familiar with some of the sayings associated with them. "Let go and let God," is just one example. For those in recovery, it's a powerful reminder of the 12 steps, but it's relevant for almost anyone who struggles with worry or face obstacles.
