Hi, my name is Kristen. And I am a control-freak. According to the Control Quotient assessment at the end of chapter one in Let. It. Go by Karen Ehman, I actually border on being manipulative. I was ONE POINT AWAY from being in the “Control Freak Alert” category. To be honest, I had never considered myself that controlling until I started to read this book. I mean I knew I could be a little controlling and I liked things done my way. But I had no clue as to how bad it actually was.
I will admit that I manipulate to get my way. I will go to whatever means necessary to get my way. I want what I want when I want it and don’t you dare make me wait or we will have issues. I do what needs to be done to get my way! I admit that so that some woman out there reading this can know that you are not alone! Can anyone relate? If you can I understand your struggle! But I pray this study will help me (and you) learn ways to just let it go. I have hope and so should you!
Our hope is in God! He is the One who can restore us and help us let things go and be free! We must put our trust in Him and Him alone. We have to stop trying to do everything on our own. That is what I hope to learn from this study. I want to equip myself with the tools to let go and let God! After all He did call and would like His job back. And if He calls, we better answer!
Are you struggling right now? Is it hard for you to let go and just trust in Him? Won’t you join me in learning how to give God His job back? Leave a comment below and let me know where you are struggling and how I can pray for you.
Love and blessings friends,
