On Excessive Planning

I’m really good at being a control freak. I like to plan excessively for things, and often have a picture in my head detailing exactly how I want them to be. Two of my talent themes are futuristic and maximizer (i.e. perfectionist). So often, I have unrealistic expectations. When things don’t work out how I planned them, it frustrates me. Like today. But you know what? It’ll be okay. As my sweet friend Meredith reminded me, more often than I’d care to admit, I just need to let go and let God take control.

It’s kind of comforting, not having to be in the drivers seat all the time, you know? I need to accept that things won’t work as planned, and then move on with life, and let God be in control. Can I get an amen?

    Definitely something to remember. God has control, and there's nothing we can do about that. When we try to take control, that's when things go awry.
    Have a lovely day, friend. 🙂
