Dear Control Freak
You would think by now you would know better. That no matter how hard you try there will be no perfect days. In fact, some days you will fall short a thousand times. I’m not trying to be pessimistic. I’m just trying to help you see these clear human facts.
Now, I appreciate your great effort. You really do strive to operate with excellence in everything you do. I see your early morning and late night routines. Your daily striving to go that extra mile does make a big difference. Even still there reaches a point where you must let go of the reigns.
You see, faith is doing all you can while trusting God for all you can’t. We all make plans, but God determines our steps. There’s always gonna be things you can’t figure out or fix. You’ve gotta rest those things in God’s hands. Otherwise, your load will be too heavy and your spirit will stay restless.
“Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.” Matthew 11:28-30
P.S. This is a struggle I face everyday.
