The Myth of Control
Rewind: Maybe you feel comfortable knowing you are in full control of your life. Many of us struggle with giving up control of our life to God. We want to know the next day, call all the shots and in the end maintain control. However, are we really in control like we think we are? Is control a myth? Think about it.
And as you think about whether or not we are really in control anyway, think about this…
Our planet spins on it’s axis at around 1,000 miles per hour. That is pretty smoking fast. But we don’t feel it so much because of this great thing called the atmosphere. Not out of control enough for you?
We are orbiting around the sun at approximately 67,000 mph. How do you like that? Think you are still in control? Our solar system is in an arm of the Milky Way Galaxy, rotating at around 490,000 mph. How is that for being in control??
Ahhh. The Myth of Control! Even if we think we are ultimately still in control, it is just a myth!
So maybe it is time to give up control, since we really aren’t anyway.
Your thoughts? Why do you think we try to maintain control in life instead of letting go?
