5 Minute Friday- Control

Today, I am participating in 5 Minute Friday at Kate Motaung. Today's word is CONTROL. Here I go:

I laughed, when I saw this word, because I though of the song, "Control" by Janet Jackson.  Yes, I'm that old! In the song, Janet sings about how when she was younger she did what her father told her, but now she does things her own way, running her own life and being the one in control. 
As I've gotten older I've realized just how very little I control and in some ways, it is comforting because it frees me from anxiety and fear. Being controlled by the Spirit of Christ within me is the kind of control that brings me peace, comfort and direction in a world that seems to be spiraling out of control moment by moment. 


  1. I laughed and thought of that song, too, when I saw the prompt. I'll probably be humming it all day. There is freedom in releasing control to our Savior, isn't there? I must confess I still try and wrestle it back from Him sometimes. Saying hello from FMF, as we're neighbors this week. Blessings!

    1. Lol! We will have to change the lyrics. Maybe something like, "Control, I gave it all to Christ, Control, now I'm truly free!" Yes, I think we all try and wrestle it back, but as you said, when we release there is such freedom. Praise our great God and Saviour!

  2. How true! "Being controlled by the Spirit of Christ" that is definite peace!

  3. Yay! I thought of Janet's Control as well. So yep...I am getting up there. Thankfully I am getting it too that it is actually past time to give control to the Father. :)

    Dropping by from FMF!
    Have a wonderful week!
