Control

What is a healthy way to think about having power–or not having it?

Today’s devotional told me to get rid of all my illusions about being in control.

The point was I need to depend on the Lord, bring everything to Him, depend on Him utterly, and enjoy the relational Reality that brings, humbling though it is.

I think I get that–at least cognitively!

Sometimes I even get it on the ground, in daily life. Where so much really seems out of my control–but not everything.

But then, maybe that’s my illusion?
