Control


I don't want the kind of peace that comes from feeling like I have everything under control. I want the peace that comes from knowing God is sovereign, even though I'm not in control.

Don't fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God's wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It's wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.

Philippians 4:6-8 (The Message)

Thanks, Ginny, for being part of the voice through which God is speaking to me...

I really like your blog. I need God to be in control of my life - always!
I really like your writing style. I write a blog of what I've learned from studying God's Word. If you get a minute, check it out. I'd like to get your opinion. : )
