Trusting in the things I can’t control

Trusting in the things I can’t control

when the world has fallen out from under me
I’ll be found in you, still standing
When the sky rolls up and the mountains fall on their knees
when time and space are through
I’ll be found in you

– Brooke Fraser (

Sometimes I feel this. The world falling out from under me. Whether its ‘good’ things or ‘bad’ events that accumulates, you can’t escape that sensation and that knowing that sometimes there’s just so much outside of your control.

We’re constantly bombarded with the message that to remain in control is the successful life. I can’t help but wonder if true success is not so much as to be in control, or seek to attain it, but in learning to embrace the things we don’t and can’t control.

To trust in the things we can’t control. To embrace the uncertainties and the only thing inevitable in life: change itself.

So today, I commit to a life of trusting, of being found in You, the Creator of whom I have no way of ever controlling. For this is the Way that leads to Life. Abundant. Full. Overflowing.
