span style="line-height: 1.22;">MOORESVILLE, N.C. - Control is a word most of us are very familiar with. Most of us need to have varying levels of control in our lives; some more than others. Personally I have had hold of my life in a tight embrace for a very long time. I always thought of myself as a trusting individual, trusting in God and others in my life's inner circle. As I matured and started to really look at and into myself in finding who I was and how I was to play my part in God's screenplay of life; I found that there was a measurable lack of trust in myself, others - but more importantly a lack of trust in God!

I grew up knowing that God loved and cared for me. At the same time I found God to be someone that was going to hold me seriously accountable and punish me; fear of God became a suppressed but real fear.

Down deep, I didn't really trust God. Maturity has a lot to do with being honest with ourselves and seeking truth; so in my maturity I looked at God as well as myself. Searching for the truth I found God to be loving, caring, nurturing, forgiving, and supporting. I looked past my fears and trust issues to delve into God - "Learn of me, for I am meek and humble of heart".

I pushed my stereotypes and wrong thinking aside and just looked for the pure truth. I found fear as the source of my trust issues, and my fear was not justified. In order to progress in life you must leave baggage behind, one piece at a time, but you have to identify the baggage first. So now that I've discovered these things, I can now let go of them, lightening my load and go forward in my life's journey to go back to where I came from: God.

One thing I've realized is that when you let go of the control and start really trusting God and others, knowing that if you turn you will over to our Father in heaven he will take care of things. You also realize how much energy you have to put into controlling everything! I feel so relieved now!

My advice to all you control freaks is to calm it down, stop thinking that you are the only one trustworthy, and give God a chance! 'Let go and Let God'
