We women are wired to control. We make sure the house is clean, the meals prepared, the children are dressed, and everyone gets to where they’re going on time. But sometimes our strength of being conscientious can morph into a weakness: we become control freaks!
There exists a miniscule line between being conscientious and being controlling. A marker so fine, we women often cross it without even noticing that it’s stretched out right there in front of us, waiting to trip us up. What we must do is determine the difference between being conscientious (our part) and being in control (God’s job). Whether dealing with our relationships with others, hovering over our home or trying to make sure circumstances line up in a way that is best for us or for our loved ones, what is at the crux of our attempts to control? It is a simple fact—we don’t really trust God. We think we know better than Him just what is best for us.
This humorous, yet thought-provoking study will help you learn to control what you can, trust God with what you can’t and—most importantly—decide which one is which! In each session a biblical character is studied as either an example of one who tried to over-control or one who trusted God instead. From them practical tools and fresh perspectives are gained that will enable women to stop trying to run the show and start learning to walk in faith.
