ENCOURAGEMENT FOR TODAY-I Cannot Control What I Cannot Control
So often, we worry about what other people are doing, politics, health care prices, the unfair things going on at work, our future and will room be made for our desires, abilities and talents. We wonder if we will be vindicated, protected, or if our prayers will be answered. I don’t know much, but this I do know for a fact and see it over and over again in my life…When I try to handle and take control of situations, other people, try to make things happen the way I think they should happen, it turns out a great big mess.
However, when I remember that the only thing I have any type of control over is myself, and that is minimal, I actually gain freedom. I gain the freedom to have boundaries to know I cannot control what Brother JuJu thinks of me or if people accept me or not. However, I can control how I choose to respond in knowing my ultimate source of value does not come from another person. I cannot control the past or the future. However, I can control my perspective in how I choose to use my past as part of my purpose in the future. Everything is a choice. It may not be a choice I desire to make, but it is always a choice.
Does life suck at times? Oh yeah, that is part of life. It will always be the ones who walk through obstacles in the midst of courage who prove their character. Just saying. Be encouraged.
You can do this!
