Sometimes I write lists, organize and attempt to take control in my desire to bring order in the chaos of my life. Okay, I actually do it a lot. And it can be helpful. Sometimes, extremely so. But it also can only take me so far. In part, because I can only be disciplined so long. But even more importantly, because there is so much of life that is far beyond my ability to control. This means I have come to grips with a fundamental reality in life – I need to spend less time trying to control the outcome of my life and a whole lot more time seeking to follow the way the Holy Spirit is trying to guide it. Honestly, it can be a struggle. But in the end it’s worth it. Because Spirit-led is always better than me-controlled.
