Today I'd like to introduce you to my dear friend and fellow blogger, Verna Bowman.
Not only is Verna one of the loveliest women I've ever encountered, but a wonderful writer, too! When I read Verna's stories, her writing vividly portrays the beautiful imagery of her walk with Christ.
In "Web of Control," she writes of a topic near and dear to this SuperGal's heart.
Stop by Verna's website and check out her blogs - www.vernabowman.com
I guarantee that what you read will be EXACTLY what you needed to hear today!!
Web of Control
Posted on September 10, 2013 by Verna Bowman
There was a time . . . I thought I was in control . . . of nearly everything. Ruled by the toxic-two, perfectionism and guilt, was absolutely debilitating.
It didn’t help that I wasn’t good at delegating. I thought I could do it faster and better.
Come now, you know I’m not alone.
I tired myself out trying to be the perfect wife and mother, the organic super-homemaker who baked whole grain breads, ironed on Monday, scrubbed floor corners with toothbrushes, polished my plant dirt, twice on holidays . . .
The kids had to be shiny and perfect. Only in a pretty world.
What a web and chain.
Oh, but then it got worse – I was sure my inner control freak could fix broken people. Life happened and spun out of control, and I realized I was the most broken of all.
It must be God’s universe, not mine.
The story of Peter ( he has his own book, you know ) helped me to see that God chooses the imperfect. The foot-in-the-mouth, fallible, fisher-of-men, follower-denier, was chosen as the head hancho of the inner-circle twelve. The rock God built His church upon.
I love how the Bible tells the truth about frail humans.
I have a close ( author ) friend who can relate to me, and you . . . and to Peter. Lady Lori, self-made sweat and success story, hit some bumps, but pulled herself up by her pink pump-straps every time . . .
Then, removed her shoes to finally bow down to holy abandon.
How did that happen?
Ummm, can’t tell you, but you can read her book, Super Gal vs God, and find out!
Then let me know how liberating it is being perfectly imperfect.

The SuperGal Syndrome – Breaking the Chains of Control, Pride & Perfectionism™
Busy, burdened women are increasingly suffering from the debilitating side effects of superhero complex, known as The SuperGal Syndrome™. This spiritual disease has become epidemic among women of all ages, negatively impacting our families, friends and fellow believers. This syndrome, and its focus on control, pride and perfectionism, causes a chasm in our personal relationship with Christ.
Fueled by my passion to inspire women who struggle in their self-imposed chains, I’m sharing my SuperGal recovery secrets through the Word of God. I encourage you to surrender these chains to God. Because. . .
