"Control Freaks" Week 3 Tuesday

1 Peter 5-7 In this series I am seeing more and more areas in my own life where I struggle with control.  Many of you know the medical challenges my husband has been facing the past several months, in addition to all of the needs our son with special needs faces. There are some days that go smoothly and then there are other days where the storm is raging all around and it seems the waves may overtake us.

I woke up early this morning thinking and stressing about all that we have going on and said to myself, “I feel so out of control because I am trying to control things that I am unable to control.” Today’s verse  came to my mind and I started making a mental list of all of the things we are facing. I decided to take each thing and give it to God. I want to give Him the things that I have no ability to control. When I do, I can have peace. If I try to hold on to the control, I have stress and anxiety.

What are the areas in your life where you feel out of control?  Make a list of those things and then spend time today giving them to God.
