Do you think you might be a control freak? These words from Jesus could be a good test to see
‘Anyone who intends to come with me has to let me lead. You’re not in the driver’s seat; I am. Don’t run from suffering; embrace it. Follow me and I’ll show you how. Self-help is no help at all. Self-sacrifice is the way, my way, to saving yourself, your true self.
What good would it do to get everything you want and lose you, the real you? What could you ever trade your soul for?’ Mark 8v34-38 (The Message)
How does that make you feel? Anything you’re holding too tightly onto?
