Its time for Five Minute Friday. Five minutes. No edits. No revisions. Set the timer….Go!
I’m the control-freak in the family. My husband is the calm one. Sure, we both like things to go our way, but I’m the one having panic attacks if life seems a little bit like it is spiraling out of control. I sit up in bed and worry about the impossible. I worry about the what ifs…..and I plan.
I prepare, plan, arrange, and formulate until I feel like I’m in control.
But I’m not. And I’m still learning peace will never EVER come from control. In fact, surrendering control is the first step to peace. And that’s scary. That’s a little unnerving to think of letting someone else run my life.
And it should scare me. Especially if I didn’t know the Someone running my life. If I had to surrender control to God, but didn’t know Him, how frightening would that be!?
So instead of pulling back and grabbing the wheel to my life, I’m pulling back the curtain of His word and finding Him. I’m learning HE is trustworthy. He is loving, faithful, true, and just. He is worthy (in fact the only worthy One) to run my life.
The psalmist knew this. The Psalms are full of life is out of control moments followed by….but God….
The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?
The LORD is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? Psalm 27:1
Life feels so out of control…..but God
I’ve messed up so many times….but God is faithful to keep loving me.
These circumstances are ruining my life…..but God is more powerful.
When I know God, I can be confident in surrender.
