Kay Warren writes that one of her mottoes is "Control the controllables and leave the uncontrollables to God." What a succinct way of simplifying our lives! I pray that I will always remember to separate my world into two categories: what I can control and what I can't.
Lord, let me leave the parts of my life which I can't control to you and NOT worry about them. All of the energy we waste on things we can't control is wasted. It interferes with our ability to control what God has left under our control.
