How do I Know God is in Control?

With everything that has been happening in life.... not everything has been kept up and perfect. Back in our home with a hitch, I had scriptures all around my sons' bed on sticky notes. He could quote all of those scriptures... close to 20 of them.

Well, this afternoon I have been finishing unpacking the last of our stuff and just happened upon one of those sticky notes. It was Psalms 41:2. One of my biggest concerns at this time is my son. What mother doesn't worry about their baby? We want the best for our kids, we want them to grow up in a perfect world, perfect family. But we can't guarantee that. We can not control everything. We have to throw up our hands and give it to God. But that is not always easy..... yet, we have to.

My son is going to be okay. Everything is going to work out for him. My little prince will make it!

Psalm 41:2  The Lord will preserve him and keep him alive, and he will be blessed on the earth; You will not deliver him to the will of his enemies.

I stand here, with arms thrown in the air, and say- "Okay God, Z's yours. I can't do it all. But, please forgive me for the times I will try and take control again."


  1. Has Z been sick or just natural Ma-ma worries about the future? I worry too sometimes with how our country and world are changing. Funny thing a friend reminded me the other day of though is how sin is a worry and we forget that sometimes. I have to ask the Lord to forgive me as I worry at times. You're right, God is in charge!

    1. Z has not really been sick. Just stressed like his momma! I was concerned about his well being and safety with some of the issues going on right now. But I have had such a great peace since coming across that scripture.
