Coffee & Words: Control Freak

Do you beat yourself up often over things that are out of your control?

Things that don’t add any value to your life, things that you can’t change, things that are a distraction to you on a daily, things that drain you, things that make you feel worthless, things that cause you to overthink.

I have learned over the years that I am not in control most of the time, and its okay, I am learning that when we humble ourselves to God in all ways, we can seriously do some wonderful things without overthinking and wanting things to be perfect, and allows us to be free from the things that are no good for us and concentrate on the things that matter the most. We can find ourselves setting bigger goals, dreaming bigger dreams, putting God first, and seeking our purpose that much more.


Over the last couple of years this verse out of Philippians 4:6 constantly plays in my head,

Be Anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God.

This verse spoke to me at a time and season in my life when I wanted to know what’s next, I wanted to know how, and when things would happen and change. I seriously wanted to have control of it all.

This verse really helped me to rest in Him, and let him steer, leaving me to sit in the passenger seat and embrace the journey.

No matter the situation, no matter the outcome, no matter what people think, no matter your season. Let God be in Control.
