WiReD - Chapter 1

Thanks for stopping by from the Let,.It.Go blog hop via Melissa Taylor's online Bible study!  I am happy you found my page!  I look forward to interacting with each of you throughout this study!  I am in Sue Molitor's group 6 on facebook.  I welcome anyone who would like to friend me on  facebook so we can better get to know one another and interact during this study.

Welcome to controllers anonymous! Gather round and introduce yourselves!  Hi, my name is Janet and I have a tendency to control.  I am a soft-spoken/enabler/martyr/people pleaser.  But I have hope, and so do you!

I hope to give God back His job during this study.  I want to learn how to trust Him so that I can be out of control and loving it!  I want to be of the Dog theology, I want to live out everyday so that others see God in me.  Lord, empty me of me and fill me full of YOU! When people look at me, I don't want them to see Janet, but rather the hands and feet of Jesus at work in this lost and dying world.  This is just a little of what I hope to gain from this study.  What about you?  Please leave a comment below telling me most about you and what you want to get out of this study!

The fact that you are here is the first step in the right direction!  Let God continue to show you His path for your life through this study!  Fasten your seatbelts, the ride promises to be wild! :)

“My words are plain to anyone with understanding, clear to those with knowledge. Choose my instruction rather than silver, and knowledge rather than pure gold. For wisdom is far more valuable than rubies. Nothing you desire can compare with it.”   ~ Proverbs 8:9-11 NLT
God bless,

I loved this post. My name is Kelly. I am in Dottie McLellands fb group 45. What I want to get out of this study is the ability to let go of my control so I can once again or maybe for the first time in my life experience peace. A peace so great that I no longer have to feel agitated and anxious about anything in my life.

Great post! I too am looking to learn how to let go and let God. I pray for each of us in this journey to a control free life ;-)

Love and blessings,

Kristen (OBS leader group 37)

Awesome post! What if the whole world thought like that? I pray daily for less of me and more of God! Looking forward to the rest of this study.

It is so freeing when we rely on HIM and not our own controlling tendencies; whether they are meek or strong willed!
God - take the reigns! Helps us to become more like YOU in all areas of our lives!
