I Can’t Control Everything

I Can’t Control Everything

The more you try to be in control, the more you fear losing control. The more you fear losing control, the more you wanna be in control. The more you want to be in control the more you realize how many things are outside of your control.

Feeling a loss of control can cause:

  • Fear.
  • Worry and anxiety
  • Negativity
  • Apathy/passivity/defeatism

Three important questions to ask when you feel a loss of control:

  1. “Is it worth my concern?”
  2. “Am I Responsible for this?”
  3. “Have I surrendered everything to God?

Same command but two different motivations as to why you cast your cares on God:

  1. Because he cares for you
  2. Because he will sustain you.

You don’t always have the power to control, but you do always have the power to surrender. God can do way more through your surrender than you could ever do through your control.

Write down what has caused you concern, anxiety, fear, loss of control or negativity:
