You might have noticed that I’ve already fallen off the wagon with this whole blog for 31 days thing. You're right. I have much to say about control, and about what God’s teaching me. Except I spent most of this weekend being a control freak and trying to micromanage my kids and my husband, leaving me little time to put this post together. It wasn’t a fun way to spend a weekend.
This whole control thing messes with our faith. As we try to control all the wrong things (people’s perceptions of us, our husbands, the chores, the PTO) we pull ourselves out of the hierarchy that God established. Control wants to place us over God. The issue of control is stronghold, a place where the enemy influences our thoughts and actions.
This is part of a month long series on Quitting the Legacy of Control, and putting an end to our control freak ways. Catch up on the rest of the posts here, or by clicking the button below.
