search me: controlled chaos

I am a self admitted control freak. I constantly feel the need to exercise control over just about every situation. I have also been diagnosed with obsessive compulsive disorder, social anxiety and a myriad of other similar issues. It’s just enough to drive any sane person crazy!

How do I handle it? I’ll be honest, some days are better than others. On good days, I lean not on my own understanding. Proverbs 3:5 says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.” When I feel like things are out of control, I try to remember that I am not in control of anything, ever. God controls everything and His ways are so much better than mine. Again, these are good days.

If I know this, why are there bad days? Why are there days where I forget that God is in control; days when I think I can fix or control everything myself? Because I’m human.

It’s all about faith. Sometimes it’s strong, other times it wavers. Try to remember that He has a plan for your good, even when times seem hard, He loves you and works everything for your good. Even when times seem chaotic, God is in control of that chaos.
