Most of us live life trying in vain to control the circumstances around us. But when tragedies inevitably strike, that illusion of control shatters.

Years ago, I worked with a young woman who battled severe health issues. She understood this concept better than most and often said, “Control is nothing but an illusion.”

While we can make plans, it is the Lord who directs our steps. Therefore, it is essential to walk through life with open hands, freely allowing Him to give and take as He sees fit. Will you open your hands to what He has in store for you today?
