God Is In Control

*cue James Hall Worship & Praise*

Y'all I am STRUGGLING!!!!! Where do I even begin? 🤦🏾‍♀️ I honestly never realized how much I like to be in control! I will take on any and EVERY thing just for the sake of getting it done. I know that it stems from my lack of trust, and it's something I'm working on.

So here's the thing, there's this one thing I've been praying about and I REALLY want, but it seems that I just keep being denied and that's honestly the BLOW! Every time I think I'm close it's snatched away and I'm left looking like

LOL this picture of Kaavia always tickles me, but it perfectly describes how I feel. Can y'all relate to that? Like it legit hurts when you feel like you're ready for a certain thing, or it's within your reach and no matter how hard you try, you just can't seem to get to it.

Well that's how I feel often, BUT that brings me to the topic of this blog post. Although I like to be in control (A LOT lol) and I have issues with trust, I feel like God is continuously showing me that no matter how hard I try, I am in fact NOT in control. I'm learning that I can't treat God like He's a human, because well, He's GOD!

No matter what the situation or circumstance I have to believe that God has a plan for my life and He only wants good things for me. Jeremiah 29:11 says: "For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." I've read this verse a million times, and I still struggle lol, but I can honestly say that it's getting a little easier day by day. I know for a fact that the only way I'm surviving every day is by talking to God, reading His Word, and then using His Word to make confessions over my life. The struggle is REAL, I get tired, and frustrated, but when all is said and done I'm determined to be stronger than my struggle. So let me take this moment to encourage you; life may be throwing you a fe curveballs, and the struggle may get the best of you at times, but just know that God is for you, He is in control, and He only has your best interest at heart. As always, never give up, never lose hope, & NEVER stop confessing your faith!
