God is in Control

  Posted on   by   4 comments

One of my favorite sayings is “If you want to hear God laugh, tell him you have a plan”.

So many times I have come up with a plan, and forgotten that I am not the one in control. I have recently decided to go back to work full time. Anyone that has ever looked for a job knows what the loss of control feels like. You put yourself out there, on a little piece of paper, and hope that you did a sufficient job of attempting to describe all that you are capable of.

This past month I have been in the interview process with a company. They have changed the job I am interviewing for three times. I am getting ready for the “final” interview and freaking out. I started looking at every aspect of the process through a microscope. Did I miss anything on my resume? Is my outfit okay? Have I done the proper prep work for this interview? Can I do this?

Then, I realized what was different about this one versus the past interviews. For the past interviews, I kept saying that God was in control. I kept saying that His will would be done, not mine. That if this is where He wanted me to be, it would all work out. When I stopped thinking about and worrying about the details, and gave control back to God, I stopped freaking out.

God is in control of my life. God is in control of my life. God is in control.

    I recently went to court and did just this. I usually prayed, “God do this for me” before and have walked away unhappy about the outcome. The last time I went I prayed, “God help me to understand your will and for you to do what’s best for me.” I went out and in to that court room with such a feeling of peace. It worked out and it was God’s control not mine.
