When I go on vacation, I like to have a hotel reserved and know EXACTLY where I’m going to stay. Even if the plans change, I’d like to have the opportunity to make a new plan.
I just like knowing what’s going to happen. No surprises! I think it’s my way of trying to keep things under control. How about you?
CONTROL-such a funny word for such a crazy world! How much can we really control, anyway? Especially, if we’re committed to following God.
I’ve always loved this passage:
“For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” Isaiah 55:8-9
But it wasn’t until just recently, that I realized that my affinity for trying to control EVERYTHING might be getting in God’s way.
If His plans are different than mine, (and they are)
and they include things I don’t even know about yet. (and they do) I’m going to be better off doing things His way.
So, WHY do I still try to plan out every little detail?
God, I officially give You control. I commit to following You even when I don’t recognize the path.
I’m okay with NOT knowing because I trust that You’re always taking me to a better place!
Are there any other CONTROL FREAKS out there who will admit it? (Show me a raised-hand emoji.) Come on… I can’t be the only one!
