one would think for someone who travels so much, I would have this “cruise control” thing down.  my husband sure does, and let me just say on our last trip, my lack of using cruise control sure did get me a speeding ticket [oops].

but I don’t.  I don’t have it down.  I still want to be the one in control.

driving home for the holidays last year, I had this thought about it [as you heard in the memo]

“if I want to do it, I want to do it”.  y’all, can you hear that sass??

now, maybe I should repent. ha.  this sounds like I don’t want to be controlled by the Almighty, but I so desperately want to be hid in the shadow of his wings, and guided by His will.  trusting Him as we walk into opportunities.

but I think, really I am just [as you’ve heard in this series before] independent.  and if someone tells me I can’t do something, I don’t like that.  I don’t want to have limits put on me, and what I can or can’t do.

I want to be the one with my foot on the gas pedal – slowing down, or speeding up.

maybe this control is an illusion.


what do you think?  is control an illusion in your life?

Hey, I'm Wynne!

Hi, friend! First, I truly am so giddy that you are here. I want you to know I believe in you and all the ways you are growing towards living a more intentional life.  I genuinely hope you are encouraged from our time together here.

A little about me, I’m a type 7 on the enneagram, a total extrovert + people lover, entrepreneur, connector, storyteller, people gatherer, and passionate wife, mama + friend. I feel most alive when I’m exploring new places and surrounded by people I love. Give me a day in the outdoors disconnected from wifi, and I am a happy girl. I run on oat milk lattes, Jesus, gratitude journaling and kitchen dance parties with my four kids.
Welcome, come on in!

let'e be friends

    It’s hard finding the balance between wanting to control and wanting to be under Him! Thankful for His grace as we navigate the territories!
