"We like the illusion of having control...." quote

Just finished a book by Francine Rivers called, And the Shofar Blew, a very powerful book of how life can be for a pastor and his family, the pressures from others and the pressures placed on ourselves in desiring to live for the Lord.  The complexities of life for everyone involved and the battle the enemy relentlessly wages to tear down anything good.  I could quote many places in the book, but for now, one stands out in a big way in my life and maybe yours too....

"We like the illusion of having control of our lives, that the sins we commit have nothing to do with anyone else.  We close our eyes to the consequences and point the finger at someone else.  Don't feel alone, Kat.  I did more than my share of blaming."
