This Sunday February 3 I am going to be starting yet another bible study in Melissa Taylor’s online bible studies (soon to be Proverbs 31 Online Bible Studies with Melissa Taylor). This will be my third full study as I started my first one late. And I have to say that these bible studies have changed my life. I have also had the pleasure and honor of being on the leadership team by leading a small Facebook group. The women who are involved in making these studies happen are absolutely AMAZING! I have learned so much from them that words are just not enough to describe the impact that these studies have had on me. While I am not where I want to be as a person, I am not who I used to be. By the grace of God and these studies, I am growing and learning. I still make mistakes (like all of us do) but I can take comfort in the FACT that I am a daughter of God who has forgiven me through His son Jesus Christ.
This study, we are reading a book called Let. It. Go by Karen Ehman. I am about 3/4 of the way through the book and let me just say one word: AMAZING! Every woman needs to read this book. There are so many nuggets of information to help us learn to let go, stop trying to control everything, and just trust God. At the end of the first chapter there is a little fun assessment to help you learn just how controlling you are. I was one point shy of being in the “control freak alert” category. This was a HUGE eye opener for me. I did not always used to be this way. But in the last few years I have become quite the control freak and manipulator. I admit this because when I write it down for others to read, it becomes real. I may be this way now but I can learn to change. This book is that kick in the pants I need to let go and let god!
So if you are a woman who likes to control (anything from husbands, to children, to time and schedules) then I highly recommend this study and this book! And you do not have to be a wife or a mother to get some great insights from this book. I am neither (yet). You can get tons of information that you can apply to any area of your life that you try to control. So won’t you join me in learning how to Let. It. Go?
