My life is unmanageable

What great relief to finally come to the place where we can say, not only "I'm powerless over lust," but "I'm powerless over me!" pg. 88 of the white book

I’ve been to this “place” before and it was great relief! Even as I read the description of a unmanageable life I cried with in myself as I knew it was true. It’s always been true. Since I was a young boy. The re-realization was painful. Painful, until I thought over the times, even specific moments, in the fall of 2010, completely deflated and beat, where I had finally come to the place where I not only could say but did say and admit that I am powerless over my life. I need to give my life to God. I’m so tired of owning and attempting to manage this unmanageable mess. I’m tired of owning my education my relationships my diet my schedule my work my happiness my well being my fun my recreation my goals my aspirations my dream met and unmet my house my spiritual effort my cleanliness my memory my age my spelling. All of it. Especially my relationship with myself my wife and with God. And not far second are my day to days and my goals in education, vocation and recreation. God, these are yours...may I remember.?

"The excuse is given that it is hard to avoid, that it is right at our fingertips and there is no escape. Suppose a storm is raging and the winds howl and the snow swirls about you. You find yourself unable to stop it. But you can dress properly and seek shelter, and the storm will have no effect upon you. Likewise, even though the Internet is saturated with material, you do not have to watch it. You can retreat to the shelter of the gospel and its teaching of cleanliness and virtue and purity of life. "
