A women's guide to freedom from the need to manage people and circumstances through trusting God's sovereign grace. The results are transforming.
God's Loving Invitation to Women--to "Rest" Rather Than to Control"I meant well. I only wanted to fix things--and people. I thought it was my duty to keep my husband on-track and to keep our children from making mistakes and getting hurt. I wanted to keep our friends healthy and happy. And I was concerned about keeping our spiritual leaders wise."But somehow in the process I ended up taking the burden of our world upon my own shoulders. I often made the mistake of believing that my will for those I loved must be their highest good. And that is where I began to go amiss, to lose my peace--and to cause unhappiness and conflict for others. I was caught in the control trap."Sound familiar?Being in control is a human way of feeling secure, getting problems "solved," getting things done "right." But God has called women to a life of trust and ever-increasing faith, free of debilitating emotions and out-of-balance relationships. It is possible to spiritually break through the control problem and to trust in a Father who never disappoints, who holds the whole world in His hands.The results are transforming!
