WEDNESDAY'S WORDS ON THURSDAY

"Be still and Know that I am God" Psalm 46:10
I am one of those people who likes to be in control.  I don't like to call myself a control freak, but I have to admit, I am.  I'm not comfortable in situations over which I have no control.  Sometimes I read the newspaper, or watch the news and wonder, like many generations before me, "Whatever is the world coming to?"  I remember my grandmother saying that. The truth is, for all my wondering, there is only One who knows , and only One who is in control.  Then I think of these words from Psalms: Be still and know that I am God.   It doesn't matter what I think I know or what I think should happen.  God is in control.  All I have to do is worry about what God wants ME to do and He will take care of the rest.  I can remain calm because He has said, "I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!"  In the end it is only what God allows to happen,  for His own reasons, that matters.  I don't need to know. Who am I to tell God what needs to be done? He WILL be exalted through it all.  That we cannot change, because He has said so.

I too likes to be in control of things and this is a great and wonderful reminder that I am not the one to take charge.

Being in control is a woman thing....well, men too, but we can become so neurotic about it.
This is a good post. Thank you for your thoughts. We are all on that same journey. Be blessed!
