Who's in Charge?

Because God is in control, we face each day with His power and love. If you receive some hard knocks today, turn them over to God. If you've been cheated, give the problem to God. If employees do not fulfill their responsibilities admit your loss and trust God fully. Christians must never seek revenge, no matter how bad the circumstances. The impulse for revenge comes from people who think that systems or bosses or powerful people are in control. Christians believe that God has ultimate power.

~Putting on a Gentle and Quite Spirit, Elizabeth George pg. 74

"THAT'S IT!" *tumbles over backwards*
(Charlie Brown Christmas ;-) )

That quote was perfect in line of some things I've been thinking about lately. Sometimes I wonder why we (myself and others in general) get so uptight when other people don't do things the way we want them to, etc., because it is not like they are in control anyway! If only I would always remember that God is in control and I can trust Him and use each situation as a way to draw closer to Him!

Thanks for the quote! :-)

I MISS YOU!!! :-)

Thanks, Leah. Not five minutes ago I was writing in my journal about something hurtful that took place a few weeks ago and remembering that I need to just give it to the Lord because He's in control and knows best. Thanks again!
