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.
