STOP AND THINK – Make today a day where you take control of the one thing you can control…yourself. (Kary Oberbrunner, author and motivational speaker)

Some people seem to be “controllers.” They want to be in charge. No matter what you have planned, they have a better idea and will set about pursuing their plan. Perhaps it’s an attempt to make up for some lack of control they sense in their own life. And that really is the issue: self-control. It may take supernatural help, but we must learn to control ourselves.

Better a patient person than a warrior, one with self-control than one who takes a city. (Proverbs 16:32)
