Control is an interesting thing. I've battled with it for most of my life. I'm not talking about the good kind of control, like self control. I'm talking about it's ugly step sister. She proudly wears the hat labeled "control freak". And she really likes to run the show.
Maybe you know all too well what I'm talking about. You know that unexplainable urge to insert your opinion, or to insist that things are done your way. You've felt that need to create order and maintain it all costs.
Control is one of those things that grabs me tight, and it often keeps from trusting in God. In fact, it usually causes me to operate in fear.
It's something that God wants his daughters to walk in freedom from.
Today I have the privilege of sharing about the heritage of control over at Echoes of My Heart. I met Katie at She Speaks and it was clearly one of those God moments, where you know he put you both in the same place at the same time for a specific reason. We have the same struggle and are both hungry to find freedom.
Hop on over to continue reading about how our heritage as servants of the Lord is not one of controlling tendencies, it is one of safety and security.
And then come back tomorrow for the kick off a month long series all about control. If this is something that strikes a chord with you I pray my story and God's truth will bring you freedom. Because this whole control thing, it's not just about us. It's about our children too.
