Control ~ Five Minute Friday

This week's Five Minute Friday prompt from our host Kate Motaung, is all about Control.

Control. This word should be considered a 4 letter word in my mind. I am the kind of person that if I feel out of control, then I feel like I'm lost. It's not with everything, well yeah it is. Let's not kid ourselves here.

I do not like any situation that I don't feel like I'm in control of. I guess not many people enjoy feeling out of control, but with me it seems to consume me at times. The lack of control in situations gives me such anxiety that it's almost paralyzing.

I know in my heart of hearts that God is begging me to TRUST HIM!! Stop trying to take the reigns in situations that I have no control over! I want to just hand them over to him, willingly, and completely forget about that horrible word, CONTROL. I can feel the battle taking place within me to stop holding on to these situations with every bit of strength that I have until I'm completely exhausted, and just let God have the contol in all of it. I'm working on it. I know He's working in me. I know He's bound to be frustrated with me, but thankfully I serve an understanding God who is willing to wait for me.

  1. The struggle is real, isn't it? I know it is for me. Praying you and I can both learn to let go and trust him because it is so freeing to do so, which is what I wrote about today for FMF. It's good to know I'm not alone in the struggle. Thank you!

  2. Nice post. I like you the picture you leave me with of God right there waiting on us. It is nice to know He has that much grace and patience for us. :)
