SM post…control

Note to self: I often pretend I’m in control, allowing myself to believe if I do everything exactly right the outcome will be as expected. Then God gently reminds me that those are lies, comforting lies but still lies. The only thing I control is me. Everything else is in God’s hands. It’s been a tough lesson to learn that doing good for a reward is self-serving. God’s desire for me to do good is for my good; it changes my heart, turning me more fully to Him. This is a good and right and healthy. Sometimes, my fretting, as life spins out of control, robs me of the quiet peace brought by remembering that God wins.
