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.
These posts are similar to the over 2700 contained on The Divine Speaks website (www.thedivinespeaks.com) where God gives YOU the one that you need to hear at that time. Lawrence is the author of several books on emotional and spiritual healing, including the latest "The Divine Speaks (Volume 1): Sayings About Life, Love, and God." which can be purchased on Amazon (link below). Now the statements you have enjoyed electronically are presented in this new book in a divinely guided order which takes the reader on a powerful journey of remembrance, bringing about great healing and personal growth. http://a.co/51Urbqf
