Have you ever had one of those times when you discover something a little less than desirable about yourself? Like maybe realizing you’re a control freak? I have.
Like that time I realized, I really don’t like people telling me how to do stuff. Or that time I was more than annoyed because hubby was right and not me (that’s the norm around here). Or the time we were going out on jet skies on vacation and I refused to let him drive, and when he did did drive, I did a lot of screaming! Which I’m sure, did little to help the matter. 🙂
You see, I’m a control freak. I want to be in charge, I want to be right, and I don’t like having to place trust in any one else. Why is that? I really have no clue. But I know, it’s not of the Lord. Because in my fear to trust my husband, I also fail to trust the Lord.
Jason was given the role of man, he is to cherish me and love me as Christ loved the church. But can he do that, if I am always trying to be in control? By always having to be right, or in control, I am stripping him of his God given right and responsibility to protect me. How can you protect some-one who won’t trust you?
My desire is, that I can learn to let go just a little bit more each day. That by trusting my husband to make the right choices for us. I can also trust the Lord to take care of us, if hubby, because he is only human, makes a mistake.
And maybe, just maybe, by learning to trust more, I will become less of a control freak. 🙂
