Feeling Out of Control?

feeling out of control
Have you ever felt at times like you were out of control?  There are only 3 things that can be in control:

 -other people

(when I don’t exercise my powers and I don’t allow God to exercise His in my life)
“I am powerless, I will not exercise control because I cannot exercise it anyway.”


(when I exercise my powers)
“I am in charge. Things will happen according to my will.”


(when I allow God to exercise His powers in mine)

I do the best I can to achieve my desires.
When things don’t turn out exactly according to plan,
I do not lose hope nor let others take away my power.
I surrender to God instead. It will be done in a better way
than I’ve ever expected it.

    Hi Jocelyn, I still can’t figure out what you have mentioned above about 3 things that can be in control. Maybe you should explain further to me if you don’t mind? 🙂

      Hi Arswino! I don’t know how to explain it, but here it goes. There are times in our life when we may feel out of control and we blame everybody. The question is this “When we get angry like that, who do we believe are in control?” When we get angry, we feel helpless because we feel other people are taking control, and we blame them. What we need to do is to take responsibility and believe that we are in control of our lives, and in times when we feel we can’t, we can just let go and let God be the one in control. 🙂

        I agree, we are the only ones who can control our life, we should not allow certain events or people control it for us.
