We all need to have some control in our life. The less control we have in any situation, the less comfortable we feel. Ironically, it seems we learn and experience more when we let go of that control or encounter situations where it's taken away. Jesus said if we want to save our life, we must lose it or let go. Thats what it means to follow Christ. When we let go, we are yielding our control to his Spirit. The longer we let our life in his hands, the more we grow.
