Easing My Fears With Prayer

As life continues to unfold, a certain phrase rings true in my head over and over again “His timing is perfect”. I wasn’t always sure how I felt about this phrase. It felt too unsure; it felt too much like I was out of control. 

My divorce has shown me that I am not in control. I think I always knew I wasn’t, but the experience of having absolutely no control over my marriage ending sealed it for me. I am not in control. And thank God I’m not. 

If I was in control I would make rash decisions that may not be the best choice for me. If I was in control I would feel constant pressure to make sure every decision I made was exactly as it was supposed to be. 

Before I continue I want to clarify. I think we have some control. In other words, I think we are given choices and are allowed to decide. But ultimately the plans are up to God.
