I am a Control Freak

I like things my way.

I love having my daily schedule go my way.
I like having things in order.  I love labels!

I notice when someone in my family messes with me and moves a frame out of place.

I want to be able to control when our house sells.  I want to be able to control the price it sells for.

But I have zero control.  Our realtor told us that our house may have been accidentally over priced by more than 20%.  So that is a shocker and not something I would choose.

A verse that has encouraged me a few months ago is now encouraging me again.  “They do not fear bad news; they confidently trust for the Lord to care for them.”- Psalm 112:7

The real possibility of having to drop our price significantly feels like bad news.  But God will provide in ways that I did not see coming.  I don’t know how or when he will but we will be cared for.

“Oh, how great are God’s riches and wisdom and knowledge! How impossible it is for us to understand his decisions and his ways!” – Romans 11:33

Letting go of my perceived control and continuing to trust and wait is hard.  I go through highs and lows.  Most days I am at peace and just trusting.

But then last night the tears came from discouragement and fear.  Jeremy and I were both feeling it.  So we prayed.

But the Lord continues to encourage my heart this morning while reading His word, a book on prayer called Draw the Circle: 40 day prayer challenge and going on my morning walk.
