In our last video (Control Freaks - 1) we discussed how we’re all control freaks. It not a matter of if, but who, what and how much we try to control. And we talked about three areas we can control.
Today, let’s go over three things out of our control that we need to let go of if we want to move forward.
What Others Say
We can’t control what others say about or to us. People will be people and sometimes they will say mean, hurtful, untruthful things about you. In those times, you must stand on the truth that God says about you.
What Others Do
We can’t control what others do to us or around us. The best we can do is try to control where we go and who allow into our inner circle. When someone does something to us it time to forgive and maybe even move on with our lives. Especially, if it’s some action they have done repeatedly.
What Others Think
We can’t control what others think. This may be the hardest because we want people to think, feel and react like we do. We all bring different baggage into every situation and we shouldn’t expect or desire for everyone to think and react just like us. God has uniquely designed and created each one of us. So take time to listen, evaluate and showrespect no matter how differently others may think.
At Faith Forward Coaching we pray that giving up control of these things will help you move forward today
