I am not in control.
I cannot control all my people.
I cannot control our situation.
Even when I want what is best,
I cannot control the outcome.
I cannot make people behave.
I cannot make people believe.
I cannot make people be strong.
BECAUSE I AM NOT GOD!!!
He alone knows the end from the beginning.
He alone knows how this thing will turn out.
I HEREBY FIRE MYSELF from His job.
And I agree to see my fight for control as what it really is:
a screaming testament to my distrust,
because I'm saying to God,
'You are not controlling this.'
