The Lord does not just desire to be in control, He is in control – whether we like it or not. I can fight for that control or pretend to have a handle on my life, but ultimately God is in the driver’s seat and always will be. I don’t have to search for control. I don’t have to have it all together. I can find incredible freedom in releasing the grip of my worries and trusting that God’s will is in the works. God’s driving record is white as snow – clean, perfect, without fault. He makes no mistakes. I think so many of us often can feel stuck in seasons or areas of unknown.

Don’t get me wrong, talking to friends or significant others about a rough day is great, but talking to GOD – now that will change your heart and perspective completely. As I prayed, I began to feel an overwhelming sense of comfort, peace, joy, and love.
