Raise your hand if you just love being out of control of your life.
Right. I thought so. Exactly no hands are in the air out there.
Generally, we’re more comfortable thinking we can change circumstances, fix whatever (or whomever) is broken, and find whatever we’ve lost. And we’ll go to great lengths to get some measure of control back.
Maybe you’ve lost something–an opportunity, a job, your health, your youth,
Maybe you’ve lost someone–to death, divorce, differences of opinion or a destructive habit.
Maybe you’re frantically running around, doing everything you know to do to find what’s missing.
If that’s true, my friend, the story in this episode just might inspire you to take heart in the fact that sometimes you don’t need to spend all that effort chasing after what’s missing; that you can’t control it all; that sometimes you just have to trust God and let it go.
