As humans we have a tendency to want to control things. Of course there’s some of us who are more of a control freak than the next, but no matter what level your controlling nature is at, you need to stop it dead in it’s tracks. You cannot control much in life – but what you can control is yourself, your thoughts, actions, words and how you react to what happens around you.

That’s it. The rest belongs to God and the spiritual realm. You can’t control how other people treat you, but you can control how you treat them and respond to them. You can’t control what God has planned for you, but you can control how much you trust and have faith in him. If you can get behind the mindset of believing that every single thing that is happening in your life is happening for a very specific reason, you will be at peace releasing the need to control all the outcomes. Today’s Daily Affirmation:

I release the need to control any outcome in my life.
