Everyone on social media has these great one great liners over an amazing picture of a person standing on top of the Alps. My husband walked into the kitchen in his fancy yard attire. (Old shorts and a beater T-Shirt.) ”I have my own one liner!” he said. Not to say he is a man without deep thoughts- but I braced myself for a corny joke. Then he said, (music stills) “Worry is a manifestation of our need for control.” I Love it! Because he’s talking about himself, just easier than saying, “Worry is my manifestation of my need to be in control.” That’s a “good word” I said, wide-eyed. He’s been asking Jesus about this deep need to be in control. It’s driven his life all these years- but it doesn’t work in his spiritual life. It kinda competes with these other lovely things called TRUST and REST.
Get your journal out:
How do you escape the grip of control and worry?
