What is causing you pain today?
What is it that you cannot get off your mind because you are trying to control it? You think of ways that you can work something out so that it would be much better than it is. I know because I do it almost every day.
But we are not in control. When we try to control situations, we are chained to that situation and trying to manipulate the outcomes. It overtakes our every thought and our emotions and makes us weak and depressed.
2 Corinthians 3:17(b) says “where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom.”
Together, let’s put down the sword of control; let it go; let God have it and quit getting in His way. Let’s let the Spirit of the Lord take over and we can inhale and exhale………..and there is freedom!! ahhhhhhhhhh……..sweet freedom!
Your blog today made me laugh because it was just like you were reading my mind! I’m breathing better now and feeling the freedom. 🙂 God is so good. Thanks, Deanna.
This is so very true! When we allow him to take the reigns, life becomes to much easier to handle when in difficult situations. Life becomes more enjoyable! It’s sometimes difficult to do but when we learn to give “it” to God, we are at peace. It’s a wonderful feeling!
