God is in Control

  1. annobiakor profile image60
    annobiakorposted 7 years ago

    Growing up I would always tell myself, "if I had control over my life all would be well". I hated changes, everything had to be the same. As long as I had constancy in my life I felt safe. As I grew older I quickly learned I had no control over anything in my life. People came and went without my permission.Death and birth took place without my permission.I experienced heartaches and pain without my permission.I had no control. Through it all I gain wisdom,knowledge and understanding that if I trusted the one that did have control the daily surprizes and transitions from one unexpected event to another would be learning experiences not moments of depression and fear. So I learned to surrender. I learned to commit. I learned to trust. I learned that God is my father and the love that he has for me is my sheild. Now instead of fear I discover faith. I am not in control but my father is and he knows whats best for me. He will do exceeding and abundantly above all I can ask or think becuase of his love for me.I no longer feel the need to be in control because I am safe in the arms of my heavenly father who is in control.

      If you don't have control of your life, you have a serious mental problem.
      Posting this on a forum is the proof.
      I'm not going to waste more time in you.

        Tantrum,

        In life there is a certain age upto which we feel we are in total control of ourselves and that's the way life should be. We think that's the ideal. But, as one gets aged and mature in life and as one keeps his experiences open to honest self-scrutiny, one will learn that a power above one is mostly in control and it's better and far more easier to surrender to that force to lead a far more peaceful life.

        That's what this writer has experienced. I believe you will too experience it in your life at some age!

          I will never do !
          I'm in total control of my life.  And I will keep it that way.
          Of course I can't control Nature, but that doesn't mean there's a God  that controls me.Nature is Nature and my life is my life.
          And now, I'm where I decided to be.
          Everything I have or everything I lack, I blame all on myself.
          there's no god.
          If you think otherwise, that's your problem.
          And that is a problem! Because, Why do you live then, if everything is controlled by a God ? What's the point ??

      Of course you have no control over those things, the people who do those things have control over themselves, just like you do. They don't require your permission just like you don't require their permission.



      That is a very selfish view of the world, and it stands to reason that it is selfish based on the fact you want to give the world permission to do things, you seem to want control over everything.

      However, once you stop thinking entirely about yourself and begin extending your worldview beyond that, you'll find far too many contradictions with believing an imaginary being is in control of everything.

      Miss annabiakor, you have been truly inspired.  You are a ray of hope.  You are the poster child of success.  After years of self loathing, you have come full circle to trust in the One who loves you.  You - have borne and survived the refiner's fire, and now with hope and progress, you now have His countenance upon your soul.  You now identify that He has been preparing you and molding you for greatness and knowledge.  In affect, you have become the fruit of the gospel of Jesus Christ. 

      With sincerity and positive hope, I want to tell you that you lift my spirit and those of like taste for the Godly walk you have commenced.  May you truly be blessed in all your life endeavors, and may the heavens open up and enlighten your mind to new treasures of knowledge and before unseen possibilities for you.  smile smile smile

    i think she feels the need to share, maybe able to encourage those who are in the same situation, but haven,t seen the light.
    also maybe also to strengthen herself receiving confirmation that she is experiencing what others also had gone through.it is what we call fellowship.also encouraging one another in the Lord. sister u r doing fine.

    I think that the idea that a god is in control of every detail of your life, is just a way of ducking any responsibility to take control of your own life.

    Change happens and we just have to learn how to stay flexible and deal with it.

    god is not the heavenly father but the council of hamsters.  fear and tremble at their silly way of getting you to surrender your will to any being outside yourself.  the events that happen in your life?  you signed up for them with the council of hamsters long before you were born and these events are unfolding because of the manifestation of the movie you signed up for.  as a human representative of the Hamsterhood of the Plaid Lodge, i laugh at misfortune not because my "heavenly father" thinks adversity is good for me but because i know i chose it to happen before i was incarnated into this vessel.  it's all part of the delicate balancing act of experiencing this illusion i live without being driven mad by boredom.  adversities merely serve as a counterpoint to the blissful path of the hamsters who are aware of their divine nature.  i see no need to surrender my will to a higher being and so i guess i'm just here for the popcorn.  smile

    to sister annobiakor
    We all face challenges in life -
    physical, emotional and relationship challenges,
    and at times we go through great pains.
    But if you have confidence that God is in control,
    in charge of your life,
    and that He'll help you through,
    then your relationship with God is your strength.
    And that relationship is grounded in prayer,
    if you are praying always with all prayer
    and supplication in the Spirit,
    being watchful to this end with all perseverance.

    Sometimes we try so hard to solve
    the problems of our health, our children, our business,
    or our future that we become agitated or depressed.
    psalm46:10 says "Be still, and know that I am God."
    Prayer is more than a plea;
    it's a place where we must spend time
    if we are to learn its power.

    As we face problems and personal suffering,
    we must not forget that our prayers are subject to His will.
    His will is the best for us.
    The difficulty is knowing the will of God.
    We cannot find true peace outside the will of God.

    If a God was in control, why would he be dependent on your faith? If God is dependent on believers, this would make believers in control.

    So, are you in control of God?

    to dear sister Annobiakor

    Many things in life change...people, work, friendship, family.
    Life on this earth has a transitory nature.
    People come and go in our lives.
    We may move from one place to another or switch jobs.
    We learn to protect ourselves from such changes;
    so we tend to erect walls that keep others from hurting us.
    We try to build stability and safety into our lives, in the midst of this violent and rapid-changing world.
    But one thing never changes, and that is God.
    God is always there, faithful, true, available, committed to us.
    We can count on God.
    He is the one sure thing in our constantly shifting lives, the still point in a turning world.
    He is the foundation of our existence...the Rock upon which we stand.

    So the Lord is saying to you...

    Trust in the Lord in everything....whatever the situations, whatever happens, whatever you're doing.

    In Christianity, nothing is smooth going.

    Everyone will face loneliness in life.

    The difference is how we accept it and deal with it.

    People come and go.

    Everyday, babies are born, and everyday people die.

    In a moment, our loved ones can be gone; our friends can turn their backs on us.

    Nothing is certain. Everything is uncertain.

    But one thing is certain...

    Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever.

    Even before you were born, He knows your name.

    He is a God who truly cares deeply about you.

    Ask the Lord to reveal Himself to you.
    Talk to Him about the things deep in your heart.
    Treat Him as your friend you can trust, not just a God you cannot reach out to.

    In your everyday life, Jesus is always there to protect you,
    always there to guide you when you need Him.
    Seek Him for guidance;
    seek Him for answers to your questions.

    And before you make any decision, first think about God,
    and how you can serve Him
    with your life to the fullness.

    Hokeyposted 7 years ago

    Believing in some God or higher power just allows people to let go of things beyond their control and trust that things will be all right. This strength comes from within and I for one wish that everyone could see this is true. If there were a God it for one would not be anything remotely human. No emotions, no gender, no opinion. Not something that you pray too asking for personal favors. All change and strength to endure comes from within. Not from some Invisible man in the sky with a list of things "HE" doesn't want you to do.


    One of his students asked Buddha, "Are you the messiah?"
    "No", answered Buddha.
    "Then are you a healer?"
    "No", Buddha replied.
    "Then are you a teacher?" the student persisted.
    "No, I am not a teacher."
    "Then what are you?" asked the student, exasperated.
    "I am awake", Buddha replied.

      It's not in His plan to annul the Sacrifice.  Peter tried that, and Jesus proved He was in control.
      As far as turning back time, He can do it if He wants to.  He did it for Hezekiah, adding 15 years to his life.  (Isaiah 38).

          You're just SOOL unless you really want to reach Him.  Then, you'd have a direct line to Him.   There is only one Mediator, and that's Jesus (who IS God also).  I can't do it for you, nor would I want to.   Where's your heart? Is it with God, or is it with your quest for power?  You'll have to take that quest to the devil; he will offer it to you!  He offered it to Jesus.  But Jesus had enough sense to know Who was in control.

                It's not my framework. Christians and other religionists always have their distorted viewpoints of nonbelievers, which of course change with the discussion and participants. We're either too proud, hard-hearted, power-hungry, lovers of debauchery unwilling to give up our supposedly decadent lifestyles, etc etc.

                The real reason nonbelievers don't believe of course is never given serious consideration. They're good, we're bad, one way or another.

                  You know it's always fun to play the role of anti-theist, cause they ask you questions like why you don't believe and what takes you to believe in him, why you don't pray and ask him etc. They stand from a point that god exist and then they start to categorize people as either good hence god believer or bad hence non-believer. They don't go with the line of reasoning of atheist/agnostics that if god exist then they need to prove it other than some poems, word salads. But they avoid that way and prefer to play the anti-theist game. Sometimes it's fun i just tried it in this thread and it shows what frameworks these people try for convincing others about god's son and humans role towards god.

    Controls what?

    Life is under control of the individual.

    A human being creates their own individual thoughts and actions.

    A human being has the potential of full self-responsibility.

    A human being knows of an limitless wisdom.

    A human being has free will.

    No entity is in control of any human being, and to think so is absurd.

    I need a definition that "factually" defines this "god" thing so that I can, just,  consider it.
    TY...:-)

      A god is a concept originally invented to explain things which were formerly unexplainable. In time it became confused with concepts of reward and punishment. Leaders of tribes began to use the concept to control their followers. Leaders evolved into governing parties and the god concept became a useful tool for the powers that be in their exploitation of the masses.

      Eventually a random observant man here or there began to break free from the delusion. In an attempt to free his fellow man from the yoke of superstition, he would attract the attention of the powers that were and end up executed for corrupting society. At this point in the evolution of the god concept, it became a truly necessary belief.

      This point in time endured for thousands of years, and the necessary, enforced belief in god became embedded in the human psyche. But the spirit of man would not be crushed, as fresh men were born every generation. With the innate if long subverted ability to reason, each generation took a step towards enlightenment, and out of the dark.

      Some are still too afraid to follow.




      Thanks, Qwark, you always make me think.

    The god thing is hard-wired in the sub-conscious.
    Plenty of evidence of this, it is controlled by the "lizard brain" and related directly to fear of death.
    Man has been trying to externalise death since the beginning of time.
    That mankind would even believe the madness and neurosis promoted in these tomes is indicative of just how big this fear is. smile

      Earn:
      You use words like: "sub-conscious," "hardwire," "evidence," "lizard brain," "neurosis," like you think those I'm trying to get a "factual" definition of this god thing from, know what yer talking about.
      You were just thinking and typing not expecting that "primitive" human life would/could read your comment with understanding...right? It's "garble" to them.
      See, when I ask a question of them, I have to lower my expectations and reduce my vocabulary to their level if I expect to get a response.
      I thought my last question to them was simply put, but I got no response, Soooo, that's indicative of the fact that I'll have to ask it again.
      It's kinda hard for me to regress to their level of understanding, but my curiosity must be sated, so onward and forward.
      Now how would a kindergardner ask that question?I'm gonna work on it.

        You make a valid point qwark. Maybe we could start by handing out the children's version. "I'm OK your OK" to them. smile
        The "your OK" part seems to be a big part of the problem for them to understand as well. smile

      Maybe you are the one who can define this god thing you mention in terms other than opinion and conjecture for me.
      Can you please?
      TY so much!

    I need to go back and read at least one of the Hubs by AEvans about her year last year . . . I really got down over the challenges faced last year and I know it affected my writing - and my relationship with God. I kept thinking at different times, "He's not really 'in control'" . . .

      Don, I know what you mean - stress can either drive us to deeper thinking and relationship to God or throw us into chaos.  The choice is ours and no choice is to choose chaos.

      did I say that I did not think for myself?  earnest I do think ... hence the deeper thinking part.  I happen to believe God gave me intellect and wisdom which is why He says He made us in His own image.  But earnest I am not a debator with those who choose not to believe.  I respect you and we are each free to believe as we wish.  It's not who I am to argue or debate..

    Jeez! there are 2 more people who seem to "know" this god thing and won't respond to my question.
    Why is that ?
    That isn't very jesus like.
    I'm sure if I asked this jesus person, he'd sit me down and try to explain it to me.
    These can't be christians..uh uh ..

      Can you describe the core of the earth to me? When you can describe it from your own observations then maybe you will get a description of God.

          I have given you a chance to prove that you can do what you ask everyone else to do. But I only ask about physical things which are much easier to explain than spiritual things.

          You have been asking that same question for months now. You have been shown all that can be shown to you, yet you still ask knowing that any answer given will not be good enough for you. What does this say about you and your personality? Does this make you a bully who likes to pick on people? 

          You talk of intelligence and how you have to ask like you are asking kindergarten children. Come up with your answer to my question. Show us how intelligent you really are. Stop dodging my question.

                I tried, all levels of communication with you: adult,juvenile, kindergarden and now back to the crib. I can only presume that understanding is not your forte,
                I must consider that you have not reached the age of credability yet and just ignore the jibberish you offer until you reach the "age-of-reason."
                So be it. I now have you on "ignore."
