Happy Monday Saints.

Proverbs 16:32 “IT IS BETTER TO BE PATIENT THAN POWERFUL. IT IS BETTER TO WIN CONTROL OVER YOURSELF THAN OVER WHOLE CITIES.”

A lot of our own frustrations and annoyances are caused by losing control over what’s happening in our lives.

When we feel like we’ve lost control, we become unsettled and anxious about almost everything. The anxiety compounds and becomes especially unbearable when we lose control over areas that are fully manageable.

Saints, not everything in your life is outside of your control. And one of the keys to maintaining your inner peace and emotional stability is taking care of the things that ARE IN YOUR CONTROL.

It’s one thing to be concerned about things that are outside of your control, it’s another thing to be anxious and fearful about the things that YOU DO have control over.

And if you’re troubled about the things that you are responsible for, things that are within your own control, then you have no one else to blame for your frustration but yourself.

Over the next few days, we will look at THINGS YOU CAN CONTROL. When you start taking care of these areas like you know you should, you’ll have a sense of inner peace and emotional stability that will overflow into other areas of your life.

You may not have control over what’s happening around the world but today’s passage says that it’s better to WIN CONTROL OVER YOURSELF THAN OVER WHOLE CITIES.

Today’s a good day to start taking inventory of the areas that are within your own control. Things like your thoughts, your beliefs, your attitude, your choices, and how you use your time. How are you managing these areas and what can you do to improve them? WIN CONTROL over things like this and you’ll start winning in life.

Have an awesome week. God bless and lots’a love,
Warren
