Relinquish Control - March 14, 2024

The formula is simple: perceived control creates calm; lack of control gives birth to fear. So what do we do? Control everything? If only we could.

Yet, certainty is a cruel impostor. A person can accumulate millions of dollars and still lose it in a recession. A health fanatic can eat only nuts and veggies and still battle cancer. The only certainty is the lack thereof. That’s why the most stressed-out people are control freaks. We can’t take control because control is not ours to take.

The Bible has a better idea. Rather than seeking total control, relinquish it. You cannot run the world, but you can entrust it to God.
