Giving God control is one of the hardest things to do.
By human nature…we all want to have control over our circumstances in life.
Add any kind of anxiety…and multiply that by ten.
When I have a situation that I am hoping will change…it usually doesn’t happen as quickly as I would like. So, I get impatient. I start grasping at everything, and try to control the situation. And…9x out of 10...I only make matters worse.
*just end up making myself more anxious..leaving no space for peace.
*causing problems in my relationships…often times, unaware that I’ve even done so.
* put my promises on hold.
This week, I had a light bulb moment.
As I was going through devotionals in my you version bible app, and towards the end of the week, I gave up a few things.
I’m no expert on fasting. In fact..I’m quite the novice.
But, I felt led to give up these things for certain periods of time during the end of the week.
And just today, I gained some clarity on something I was seeking wisdom for.
But first, I had to give up control. And that was extremely hard to do.
You have to go through your own journey with giving God control…but, I love to forward resources that have helped me.
In the comments, I’ll leave links to the Bible devotionals that I went through this week. I’m not really tech savvy, so if I can’t get it to work…I’ll post the names of the devotionals and the authors..and hopefully that’ll make it easier.
They are really great. I hope you are blessed by them.
