Out of my hands...

One of my goals this year (which I haven't really posted any here because of all the stress of goal-setting and stuff I mentioned before-) is to stop trying to run my own life and let God be in charge.

It is soooo easier said than done. But the fact is I have very little control over much in my life. I can't control if I wake up each morning. I can't control what other cars are doing on the streets around me as I drive, what my husband's boss will decide to do with his job on any given day, what callings I get in church, how many children I do or don't have, or who likes or doesn't like me at the moment. I have absolutely NO control over any of this.  So there is no point in worrying over it, or stressing. Period.

I am practicing letting One with greater knowledge do what He does best, and just doing what I can do down here from day to day. I can do laundry, dishes, dusting, shopping, trying to keep to a budget, supporting my family, and serving where I am needed. That is all. Everything else is out of my hands.

So why is it so hard to do????
