Who has control of your life? That is a question I asked our children in November when election stuff was brewing strong. We have ten and seven year old sons. They were somewhat interested in the elections, had seen ads, had heard names, and had chosen who they wanted for POTUS.
I was on the fence. I did not know who to vote for…honest to God I was really bouncing between candidates and then I realized: “Who has control of my life?” A profound question had many answers in my head….
Ultimately we are in control of our own lives.
It really is not the president/ruler of your country. It is YOU. We decide what to do each day. We decide to chose love. We decide to be fearless or fearful. We have many authorities to obey, but ultimately each day it is ME who decides how to behave, how to live, and how to love.
You are the King.
Forgive me when I forget that you rule with love, fairness, justice, and goodness.
Please reign in my heart. Please reign in my husband. Please reign in our sons.
Your Spirit is big time awesome. Your Spirit is our souls. Your Spirit explodes and slowly oozes out of us. May I be a vessel for your love and light.
Proverbs 16:32The Message (MSG)
32 Moderation is better than muscle,
self-control better than political power.
