Can you imagine driving and letting go of the steering wheel? It takes a lot of guts and courage to keep your hands off the wheel because you know what might happen. Or can you imagine free falling out of a plane without a parachute? If you find yourself falling into a thick forest, would you try to grab onto the branches to break your fall?
In life, when you get scared or panic, maybe even feel paralyzed, often times you’ll want to take control of a situation. Just like falling into a thick forest, you try to grab onto the branches, but they break. So where is God in all your situations? Are you in control of your life, or do you want God in control? Do you truly trust God with your life or are you more concerned about satisfying your needs and desires instead of waiting for what God wanted? Continue Reading

Perhaps you have anxieties or struggles that you thought you had a handle on, but later found that the weight is back on your shoulders? Do you feel discouraged or hopeless after tireless attempts to control your temper, selfish impulses, or bad thoughts? Maybe your struggles are caused by physical, emotional or spiritual exhaustion?
