Legal Times – Issue 11

Dear Clients,

I can’t believe the first month of 2015 has already come and gone! Where has the time gone? Yet another reminder that we are not in control. Control. What an elusive word. Elusive because by definition it states “to direct the behavior, actions or function of something or someone; to have power over something.” Well, I don’t know about you, but I’m reminded on a daily basis that I control very little in my life. For those of you who have children, you know what I mean. Ask any parent of a new born if they have control. Or any parent of a teenager, for that matter. Everyone is trying to take control. But the more I ponder the word, I’m not sure I want it. Control, that is. Sometimes things happen in life that we can’t fix (or control), and we have to stand back and let God fix it. And you know what? I’m okay with that. His track record is better than mine. My good intentions don’t always turn out like I planned. However, His do. Because if you read Isaiah 55:8-11, He explains it. Proverbs 16:9 says, “The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.” Control. The more I think about it, I’m glad I’m not in control. But what a wonderful feeling to know the One who is!
