So Thursday will be turning into a Blog Hop for me...
I always do love a good Blog Hop
I actually signed up to do an online Bible Study with Proverbs 31 Ministries & the book we're looking at is "Let it Go" by Karen Ehman.
So far -I'm loving it. We've got access to the video that goes with the study, as well as the awesome social media to connect with each other & the plan we're going to do each week. Even a Pinterest board with scripture all pretty & ready to be repinned to boards...
See - Social Media CAN be a good thing...
But every Thursday will be a blog hop so we can jump around (not literally... if you dont want to... if you do, feel free) & touch on a few questions that we can pick from off of our awesome leader's website.
I'm not sure how I even fell into this book... its not a topic that I feel like I need to study up on.
I guess God has something else to tell me
The topic? Control
The book says on the front "how to stop running the show & start walking in faith"
Maybe I got swayed by the words "running" & "walking"... I dont know
But Control it is
& its funny because I never really thought I was a 'control' person.
Afterall, I'm the one who when someone says, "where do you want to eat?" - I'm the first one to say, "I dont care"...
but I guess that voice inside that is saying "Please dont go to White Castle" is a part of control?
Where I found out I may have an issue with control came in the first chapter.
We had to take a test, "finding your control quotient"...
One of the questions was "Let's be truthful - I like to get my own way"... I answered "Always" & wrote to the side "Who doesnt?"
...come on... we all know its true... right?
am I the only one?
But then I added up the answer... I ended up with a 33
that put me in the category with the 31-40
& I didnt like the category that put me in!!!
I didnt like it so much, I'm not even going to say what it said about me!
For the record, there was one worse that was with the total of 41-50 Control Freak Alert!!!
I wanted to be in the one below that was with the total of 21-30 (You vacillate between being agreeable & easygoing at times, & in some situations, wanting to take charge)... see - I relate to that... that's GOTTA be me...
This is where the bells go off, because know what I did?
I wanted to go back & change my answers to shave off 3 points.
Seriously....I wanted to do that....
...I'm hanging my head in shame....
That's when it hit me & I realized that maybe I do have an issue with control.
I get it Lord
I need to start looking at things & about not having it my way all the time
... but looking at how God would want things...
This is going to be an eye opening few weeks
So I'm excited to jump around (Yes, I'll actually do it literally sometime today, I'm sure) & see some of my other lady friends who are learning to Let it Go...
