Devotional Monday: Control

 This month as we have talked about singleness, we have covered how to make the most of singleness in a guest post from Erin at Sweetness Itself,  And one from Kiki at In His time on community and singleness. But we haven't touched on control, you may be asking what does that have to do with singleness? But it does, cause all of us at one time or another had a plan, what age we were going to get married, have kids..etc. All of these things are "plans" that we make up so that we can have control. Control over when we will get married, control over our lives. All of this so called "control" seems a little exhausting, and when it's all said and done we come to realize that we cannot do it on our own. When we decide to give up our "control" God is right there to take our weary, exhausted self's and let us know that he's got it. Singleness is a season where we are able to become the godly women that God calls us to be, it's a season where we can totally and completely focus on God without anything else in the way, it's a season that may last for a short time or long time. Sisters, no matter how long or how short your season of singleness lasts remember to trust that God has it all figured out, and rest in the verse below knowing that no matter what God's plan is for your life, don't be afraid to give up the control and let him take the pen and script his plans for your life, no matter what season you are in.

 1 Chronicles 29:11-13
"Yours, Lord, is the greatness and the power
    and the glory and the majesty and the splendor,
    for everything in heaven and earth is yours.
Yours, Lord, is the kingdom;
    you are exalted as head over all.
12 Wealth and honor come from you;
    you are the ruler of all things.
In your hands are strength and power
    to exalt and give strength to all.
13 Now, our God, we give you thanks,
    and praise your glorious name."
