I’m so thankful for your sweet service to our Lord, and your desire to lead others to follow Him more closely. Your job is so important! Especially as we talk about moving in a new direction: from Control Girls to Jesus Girls.
As we study the stories of seven controlling women in the Bible, we’ll be looking for two things:
- Warnings and lessons for ourselves.
- New insights about God.
Yet our goal is broader than just knowing new things. We want to turn in a new direction because we see and know and believe what is true. And what is true about this subject of control? Here’s a brief summary that you are welcome to share with your women:
God did not design us to carry the burden of trying to control everything. When we try to, we only make everyone miserable—ourselves included. And the only way we’ll ever find the deep security, peace, and hope we’re craving is when we do the opposite of taking control: when we surrender to God, and entrust our Happy Ending to Him.
May the Lord richly bless both you and your group as you step onto this path that leads from Control Girl to Jesus Girl.
