Control (He Knows What's Best)

In today's world, we love to have control. We like power over our diets, our houses, our jobs, our social media pages, and the list goes on-and-on. If we have it, we want to RUN IT. The only problem is, that doesn't work with everything.

Some stuff can't be tied down or dictated, namely the people in our lives.

Grateful (Inspired by "Bigger Than Me"

From moments that made me cry to days that made my heart sing.
From valleys to mountains.

To walk in my destiny and on my purpose stand.
So, as I embark on this new chapter of what is to be
I am grateful that it is bigger than me.
