We don’t worry about perfection or making it just right, but rather allow the words to flow freely without over thinking. If you’ve never written for the Five Minute Friday, come join us.

Swirling, swirling, swirling.
Down, down, down.
When life spins out of control it’s like the air gets sucked right out of your chest. I put forth all of my effort and strength and try to hold on with all of my might to any remnant of what was. But the downward spiral continues….or so it seems. Circumstances change, people come and go, jobs, ministry, position. I’ve learned that when the Lord desires to take something, or someone, out of your life, His strength is greater and he will always win. Because, after all, isn’t He the one in control?
A life spinning out of control is not necessarily a bad thing. I’m learning that it’s not in living a controlled life that brings the most fulfillment and joy, but rather it’s in a life lived out of control, on the edge, walking in blind faith, never knowing where to turn…this is a life that brings fullness. It’s one that will cause your lungs to expand, to breathe in deep, to inhale fresh air at every turn and to exhale all of the clutter and chaos that once controlled your life.A life spinning out of control is not necessarily a bad thing. #glimpsesofhisbeauty Click To Tweet
It’s not easy for me to give up control. But the One who holds the world in His hands, He demands it. Give up control! Life is no fun when you are fighting a tug of war with someone stronger than yourself. In the end, He will win, and it will be for my own good.
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.
