  1. Yes! He is trustworthy with our hearts and our lives. Any delusions I have of being in “control” are simply that, delusions. I can’t know what is best because I can’t see ahead. I would much rather let Him drive. Thank you for your words of testimony. He is glorified through them.

  2. This is so good to be reminded of today. The last 2 and 1/2 years of my life have necessitated my need to hold on to this as a way of life. An event that I thought would happen (to my logical way of thinking) did not happen . So I needed to be reminded of the joy that is found in relinquishing control to the One who loves me more than anyone else. Thank you.

  3. Oh, Melanie, I am learning about relinquishing control all right. I have always held on to my life tightly, and God has showed me this past year that He wants to guide my life, and He will take me where He wants me to go, not necessarily where I want. It has been a long year with a lot of personal and physical struggles.
    Thank you so much for sharing here today!
    Is multitasking the key to productivity?

  4. “Just follow along and enjoy the ride.” Yes, I need to remember that’s all God asks me to do and He’ll take care of the rest! So glad your words are with us today, Melanie!
