I glanced at the date on the calendar today and realized something:
In just six weeks my new book releases!
The book is about a woman’s tendency to be controlling: from a little controlling to a card-carrying member of Control Freaks Anonymous!
What do we try to control?
Others’ opinons of us.
The appearance of the house.
Why do we control?
Because we compare ourselves to others.
Because we aren’t content.
Because we are pursuing the appearance of perfection.
Because we think God (or someone else) isn’t moving fast enough.
Because we have the wrong goals.
Lots of reasons, but I honestly think at the root of it is this:
We don’t really trust God.
We think we know better than He does just what is best for us.
Well, guess what? God called and He’d like his job back.
He is ready to teach us to learn how to control what we should, trust Him with what we can’t, but most importantly, how to decide which one is which!
Oh, and there is also a 6-week Bible study and teaching dvd for you to do alone or with a group. It tackles six different characters in scripture and explores how they either were control freaks (bad examples) or trusted God (good examples!)

And tell me, of the areas listed above, where are you most tempted to try to control? Or is it something else?
Do tell. I’ll feel less like a lone-ranger control freak if you do!
