Who's in Control?

I believe.com posted this saying, “I am not in control, but I am deeply loved by the one who is!” What a great way to begin each and every day. Rick Warren, starts one daily devotional with, “Every day, you have to decide who’s going to be in control of your life – you or God. That choice is a battle. There are things in your life that you want to control. You want to make your own rules. But stress relief always starts with letting God be God. It always starts with saying, ‘God, I’m giving up control, because you can control the things that are out of control in my life.’”

Isaiah 41

9 You whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, And called from its remotest parts And said to you, 'You are My servant, I have chosen you and not rejected you. 10 'Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.'

Some days begin with anxiety… other days begin with joy… others begin with frustration. Each new day will come with its share of challenges, problems, and even new blessings. But, I can give up control, I can relax and trust God. That just makes life much easier.
