#FiveMinuteFriday: I can’t control much, but this is what I can control…

//

Oh, the fear that controlled me like a string puppet for so long.  Learning how to slash through the lies that try to reattach has been a journey, a fiery process of refinement.

Oh, I pray the leaders make the right and just decisions, but I can not control them – I can only control me and how I give love.

Oh, my husband is his own person and no matter how close we get and how wonderful our relationship progresses, there will be times I wish to get in his head and grab the handle bars in order to turn him to my point of view – but I can’t.  I can only control me and how I give love.

Oh, my stars – kids are a blessing but no matter how many times I repeat myself, what I do will still be more in the long run – and since I can’t control them, steering them from harm, I will choose to only try to control me. Just me and how I give love.

May I trade control for trust in God all these areas.  Everyday will be a work in progress, admittedly.

  1. That desire for control is deep in us–as wives and moms–but we are happier when we give control to God. You are right–every day is a work in progress. I’m your neighbor at FMF. Have a blessed weekend!

  2. Great post! It is important to learn the difference between what we can control and what we can’t, and ultimately to trade control for trust in God. Not always easy though.

  3. Yes, love it! I can completely relate to wanting to climb inside your husband and children’s head so they can see and understand your way, but just to love them yes yes!

  4. “Just me and how I give love” Oh, this is so beautiful and true, Meg! Thanks for sharing these words that bring me back to the best priorities and focus that God wants us to have! Blessings & Hugs!
