Control the things you can control and give what you can't control to God.
The issue lies in determining what you can control. It is highly likely
that you think you can control much more than you really can. Because
you are not a good judge of what you can and cannot control, the safest
route is to assume you can't control anything --- which knocks down the
ego and huge amount and creates humility --- and to give it all to God.
You can't be partially pregnant, and you really can't be partially in
control of certain things and not of others. Of course, at a level of
Spirit, you and God work hand in hand to create what you have asked for
in this lifetime, so that is the ultimate control. But how many people
walk this earth from the same consciousness Jesus did. You are working
toward that consciousness, but until you get there, assume that you
don't know what is in your best interest and you can't control anything.
Give it all to God. With that surrender comes great peace and joy.
