Out Of My Control

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7
Sometimes things happen that we can do nothing about. But boy will we try! Depending on what it is, we will push, cajole, manipulate, beg and even bribe. And what does it all get us? Do we actually change anything? In fact, what we probably got was even more stressed and frustrated. The scripture here in Philippians tells us to take a different approach. Pray and just give it to God. Some things we have some control over, and some we don’t. But in all things, I hope you will join me in simply trusting in the One who is in control of all things.
