134: Who Is In Charge Here?

Last Saturday’s candid lunch was enlightening, effectual, timely, and…excuse me if this sounds a little exaggerated, but it did seem a bit … life-changing.

Sitting in a cozy Panera booth, my friend, N, shook me to the core. Her shocking news hit me and began to rock my world, brought tears to my eyes, and – here’s the best part – gave me permission to breathe. She simply said…

“J…God is in charge here…Not you. God has the wheel…Not you. Thank Him every morning for another day. Tell M every day that you love him, and live your life.”

Thank you, N, for your simple and marvelous words.

    I agree with the comment to an extent. God is in charge. That doesn’t mean that you don’t have to stop your son from damaging his life, or someone else’s. He is too young to understand the consequences of ANY of his actions. He is not mature enough to “get it”. You need to do everything you can to stop him from ruining his life before he has a chance to understand what life is worth.
