Letting God Have Control...


Father: Thank you for bringing me to this point in my life. A point where my desire to have more of You each day grows stronger. For You to be in control of every aspect of my life. Am I there yet? Letting You have complete control...How I wish the answer could be a definitive, 'Yes', but we both know that would be a lie. 

Someone makes a comment...it gets in my crawl, rubs me the wrong way. I want to not let it bother me. God is the one in control and His opinion of me needs to be the only one that mattters to me.Yet, almost a week later and my mind still wanders to a person's off-hand comment. Who is in control? 

Help me Jesus.  

“When we willingly accept our lot in life, welcoming all that God is trying to teach us through it, we lose the drive to over control, to micromanage in an all-out attempt to appear perfect and ensure everything is “just so."" Pg 54 "Let It Go"

  1. Dawn, I join with you in your prayer. I also often dwell on hurtful words or actions. I sometimes take it to God with the intention of leaving it with Him, but then I'll pick it right back up again. How grateful I am for God's mercy and patience with us. I want to be like Jesus. Praying that each day you will find it easier to just Let.It.Go.
