Today’s five minute free-write is on the word CONTROL. Hosted by Kate over on Heading Home, just write for five minutes and see what comes out.
I’ve pondered this word for a while.
Control – head honcho, King of the Hill, Big Wigs,
When we are kids, we dream of being adults because then we will be in control.
When we become adults, we find out that really, control as humans see it, is an illusion.
Control implies that we can change things, that we can affect the path something is on.
To some extent, we can. But in many, many ways, we are out of control.
I’ve pondered this a lot in the past few months as so many we know have lost loved ones – to illness, to cancer, to age, to dementia, to poor choices, to any number of things.
Where is control? Can we ever really have it?
I guess, no – I KNOW – God is the only one really in control. We can make movement, choices, plans. But God is the one who makes thing happen according to His will.
So, submission to His will is the only control I have. And that controls my eternity. Which controls my peace.
