Giving Up Control

Something I’ve noticed with myself lately is that I’ve started this journey to gather a community and spread God’s word.  And I’ve just run off with it at times, without even stopping to ask the big guy if that’s the direction he wants me to go.

Sometimes in life we need to stop and do just that.  Ask the big guy what he wants us to do and stop trying to control everything around us.  If we truly learned to let go, and let God, our lives puzzle pieces would just fall into place.

As mothers, especially, this is way easier said than done.  We’re so used to taking the reins and leading or families through this circus called life, even when we need God the most, we still don’t let go.  Yes, it’s scary to say, “Hey big papa.  I’m fine trying it my way.  Take the reins and lead on.”  But why is it scary?

It’s scary because we don’t have or hands in it.  It’s scary because we don’t understand the outcome, or can’t perceive it.  However, we need to remember, our Father will never let us down or lead us astray.  He loves us more deeply than we can imagine, and if we think about that total instead of the fear that tries to creep in, then we can truly see what God has in store for us.  We can live the life he intended us to live.

We need to be patient, and understand our prayers will be answered.  And we also need to remember that sometimes we need that spiritual reminder whether it’s from a sister, a friend, a church member, our even a pastor.  (Yes even a pastor.  They don’t bite, and they are people just like us so don’t freak out and avoid this path because it may be just what you need.)

So give up that control. Ask for help if you need it.  You never know, one day soon, you may return the favor. Leave a comment below for help or guidance, whether giving or receiving.
