Giving up Control

Praying Handsphoto © 2006 Valorie Beaman | more info (via: Wylio)Control is a funny thing.  When everything is going great taking control is not hard.  When times get tough it is easier to seek someone else for help.  We also like to take credit when things are going well, and we like to blame others when things go wrong.  For me giving up control is a tough subject.  I've never been one to leave things up to chance.  I like to know what the plan is.  So learning to let go will take some adjusting on my part. 

For years I've made my own decisions concerning my life.  I would consider the pros and cons and make the decision that best suited my wants/needs.  Now as I'm searching for a new approach I feel a little lost.  How do you make the transition on giving up control?

I was thinking about the subject and I remembered a Bible scripture:

Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths. - Proverbs 3:5-6

Giving up Control is going to start with leaving  my path up to God.  I pray that  He will guide me on how to make the transition.  So today is the day that I am giving up control.
