Need for control

A well known reality TV star was recently discussing the need for control.  This individual needs control over every part of her life. This made me think about how often I’ve needed to control a situation.  As I shared recently, letting go is not always easy. Yet, God doesn’t want us to control everything. Ouch!  That’s much easier for me […]
