Today on HELP! Relationships 102, we speak to the person who struggles with the need to be in control! We begin the process of addressing his/her issues. The LORD has a plan to set the "Control Freak" free from their need to be in control. 

That person might be most comfortable when they feel they're in control, which means they can never truly be at peace or even happy because the LORD will never allow them to have complete control over anything or anyone. And it is right when they think that things are under control, that life  faithfully reveals just how far out of control of things they really are. This can be unsettling to anyone, but to the controller, it can be absolutely terrifying. 

Those that strive to be in control are often misunderstood and mischaracterized as villians. The irony is, as bold and courageous as they can often appear to be, their act of controlling, is most of the time deeply rooted in fear! Therefore, as angry as we tend get at people who need to be in control, we need to step back a moment and see them for who they truly are... that we might better understand how to relate to them.

Most are completely unaware that their need for control is almost always at the expense of others. And even when attempting to explain it to them they sincerely, strain to grasp the understanding of the pain that they have most often unintentionally bought upon others...especially those closest to them!

Join us as we unlock the cage of the "Control Freak's" control.
