Why must you maintain control?

Holding onto a life that is not your own

Struggling to figure out the future

That burden belongs to Jesus

He’s reaching out now

Relax your grip

Give it to Him

Just do it

  1. Oh, that word – control. Isn’t it strange the we, created beings, struggle so hard to control everything around us when we truly have control of not one single thing? And each time we think we have learned that lesson we are faced with a new situation where we must, again, learn to turn it all over to the Lord before we truly mess things up. I love this poem. Thanks for posting it and the prayer beneath.

  2. Amen, Jan. And isn’t it comforting to know that, even when we’re not holding on to Him, He’s holding on to us? 🙂

The righteous person faces many troubles, but the Lord comes to the rescue each time. - Psalm 34:19
