WHO’S A CONTROL FREAK THEN?

Updated: Aug 19, 2021


You are!

And so am I!

Unfortunately!

Many of us are.

How do I know this?

In Genesis 3:16, God told Eve that as a result of the fall to temptation she would “desire” her husband. This actually means to “run after” and “run over” him, if you check out the Hebrew meaning*. I find that a little scary. Why? It suggests control right there, right there in the beginning.

Oh dear and ouch! We women have been trying to orchestrate things FOREVER and a day, girl.

The problem is that it's slightly exhausting for us. All this running around and over. We do it because we think that if we are not organising, intercepting or freaking out about something, then it won’t get done properly.

Ridiculous. And it smacks of idolatry.

Oh boy, it’s getting uncomfortable around here isn't it?
