Somehow, somewhere I have gained the perceptions that I am in control.  That I can control my destiny, my success, my happiness, my safety, my family, my world.  With this perception comes a feeling of failing when things are not within my control.  This feeling can then turn to a perception of myself as a failure because of my lack of control over my world or circumstances.  Yet the thing I so often miss is that I am never in control and neither is my world.  The only control I truly have is that of surrender to God and His control.  My relationship with the creator creates in me a peace and strength that does not come from my ability or lack thereof, but in my trust, obedience, and dependence on one that is greater (Prov. 3:5-6).
