I was just having this discussion with a dear friend this weekend –
It is a practical lesson but God can help us get there.
We cannot change people, or control them.
And again, say it with me –
“WE CANNOT CHANGE PEOPLE OR CONTROL THEM.”
We might as well accept it & give it up….
Oh how I know it so well.
We can only control how we react to them, to life’s circumstances.
And if we are having a hard time controlling ourselves, we might just need to ask for help. There is no shame in that.
Sometimes we need someone who has been where we are –
Who has come out the other side better to extend a hand.
And be sure to really lean into the process – trust it.
Do not be afraid to move forward.
He will lead you where you need to go.
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. ~ Jeremiah 29:11
Hallelujah Lord – may we see that & know it, really know –
Deep, deep down.
Much love y’all & much more applied wisdom,
