Control, ME Newsletter, Vol. 3, Issue 1
Now that we’re thinking about resolutions in different terms, let’s consider our commitment to self control, and how it applies our desire for achievement of goals.
"The only real control we have is how much control we allow GOD to have."
It took me a few minutes to wrap my head around that revelation.
And it took me even longer to figure out why I wrote it.
I guess I am feeling a bit out of control lately, and have been trying to make myself feel better. I’m not really giving it all to GOD. And I know that makes things harder. Yet, I still feel like there are things I should be taking care of and find myself steering towards them with all my might. It’s like I’m trying to take a sharp right and GOD wants me moving straight on. Am I straying or am I testing? Does it matter?
If I give it all to GOD, will that decrease my temptations? No, not likely.
But it will give me space. Giving our goals to GOD along with our fears, apologies, hurts, and hopes, opens space within us. It is the open space within us - space within our hearts and minds - that GOD uses and fills.
Let out the “I can’t”, “I’m afraid”, “I’m sorry,” and let GOD adore you, assist you, assure you: “You can.”
