Strugglin...

One of the things that I struggle with is control...I like to have control. Being a follower of Christ, this is hard. I have chosen to give up all control of my life. The personality I have likes to have control, make decisions, and be organized. If I can create a plan to get to the end, then I will. I like to have the course planned out.

Now, for the most part, this is ok. I know that God has a plan for my life that is far greater than I could even imagine. He knows what is best.

It becomes hard when I am in the midst of a situation where I do not know what happens. I can not know what happens...when it involves more than one person, you can't really decide what happens on your own. So for now, I put my trust in the creator of the universe to comfort me, lead and guide me, and when I absolutely need to know, He will show me the way.

Until then...I'll struggle through this with God by my side.

I've come to realize that just because you struggle with something doesn't mean you're sinning. lately, that's how I've felt. that I was weak or whatever and that's why I was struggling. but it's nice to own up to it and realize that if we're struggling...satan must really want us badly. so maybe I'm doing something right after all?

I like your thoughts :)
