We Really Don’t Have Control
As I was listening to a podcast while driving a couple of months ago, I heard this; the number one reason why people are stressed is because we always try to be in control.
This resonated with me a lot because if you really think about it, at any point in time a lot of things could have happened and either our expected result did or didn’t happen, the only thing we have is the capability to decide and react in that specific moment.
Let me give an example, you could be a defensive driver but still, get into an accident. You could be a germophobe and that you always sanitize everything but still get diseases. The point is we could decide to be or to do something, but we are never assured of the results.
What I have been thinking about is that even if we were successful or we were not, does it really have something to do with who we are, what we do and the choices we make?
I am not close to getting the answer, nor do I think I will get one. What I do know though is that I do have control over what I do and how I react to it but will never have control over the results.
My interpretation of this is that God has given us the freedom to decide what we can do and how we react to it, but whatever the results are, it is up to Him.
Have a blessed holy week.
