Control….we want it, we need it, we won’t let go of it without absolute dire circumstances calling us to release the reins! Remember some of those old cowboy movies where the runaway stagecoach would take a turn for a bad situation and the only solution was to let go of the reins and jump?
It’s that jump where everything matters. A leap of faith that you are better off than the destruction you were heading for? Trouble is our fear of being hurt from leaping. Let’s look at that thought closer though. It’s pretty simple to understand….definite destruction to stay on the ride and hold those reins for what you know you are headed for, or let go and jump straight into your hope?
