Control // Five Minute Friday — 24 Comments

  1. Thank you for your comment on my post! I love this embracing of a lack of control! It’s SO freeing, isn’t it? So much freedom in not having to know it all 🙂 God bless!

  2. Love this post! I too wrote about control….just a few words…As for me…I learned long ago to let go of trying to control everything…..maybe it was a life lesson that taught me it….something that had a reverse affect. Maybe I will share it on my blog soon 😉 I’m proud of you! You are indeed growing my friend…and growth is awesome!

  3. It’s amazing how releasing control of our lives to God brings freedom, isn’t it Barbie? So thankful to be living in this freedom with you, my friend!

  4. This: “This is how I want to live my life — out of control, free of my own grip and released into the the control of his everlasting arms.” Oh yes, me too, my friend! Beautiful post, Barbie. A great reminder of the freedom we have in the releasing and relinquishing. Faith isn’t for the faint-hearted, is it? xo

  5. Barbie your post was beautiful. You said – This is how I want to live my life — out of control, free of my own grip and released into the the control of his everlasting arms.
    Being free of our own grip…that phrase right there. What a beautiful release it is to my own soul that clings, lets go, clings, lets go…maybe like the song I hold on loosely even.
    Thank you for sharing your wisdom and what the Lord has shown you.
    Have a wonderful weekend.

  6. God works most in us when we are made ‘uncomfortable’. Spinning out of control, allows us to see a bigger picture. We seek answers in places less obvious, and throw our hands up and allow God to take the wheel. It usually ends in the best destination ever!

  7. Wonderful post, Barbie! This says it all

    This is how I want to live my life — out of control, free of my own grip and released into the the control of his everlasting arms. Although life my swirl uncontrollably around me, I can trust in Him knowing that He holds all things together. He alone controls the outcome.

  8. So true, it’s often the times when we feel everything is out of control that turn us to God and highlight our need for him. It’s encouraging to remember that he is always in control, no matter how chaotic it may seem to us.
