Free Will (decisions)

I have said and done many things that have misrepresented God. At times I have tried to control the decisions other people made.

I believe if you are struggling in life one of the reasons  you may be struggling is you are struggling making decisions that lead to life. 

 God cannot misrepresent himself. He is completely Who Is. He has never nor will ever "control you". He wants to help you make good decisions but if you don't want him to help you make good decisions he will not override your will, otherwise he would not be Who He Is. 

I believe one of the ways to help you is to help you make decisions that help God help you. I believe that one way this can be done is by helping you no longer want to make decisions that hurt you and others of you. One way this can happen is to help you know the truth about God, how He wants you for no other reason than He wants you. I believe if you know there is nothing in God's heart He  wants more than  you, you will naturally be more inclined to want Him and be able to trust Him more.  

Psalm 32: 8-9 I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;
    I will counsel you with my loving eye on you.
Do not be like the horse or the mule,
    which have no understanding
but must be controlled by bit and bridle
    or they will not come to you.
