The Mother of the human race, Eve, was the original owner of the Junior God Badge. Like our mother, we strive to be in charge in an out-of-control world.
The root cause for our control issues is fear. The more fearful you are, the more controlling you will be.
The omnipresent woman strives to be in all places at all times. She is always zooming, zooming, zooming, because she is striving to be everything to everybody.
Omnipotence refers to being all-powerful, and this wannabe omnipotent woman is filled with bigger-than-life expectations for not only herself but others, too.
The motivation behind the controlling woman is always fear, insecurity, and lack of self-esteem. In order to control her world, she tries to be omniscient, which means having infinite awareness and understanding.
The next characteristic of some Junior God Badge owners may not be as obvious as others. Countless women spend their whole lives walking around on eggshells, trying to keep peace at any price. These women are striving to be like Jehovah-Shalom, the God of peace.
The wannabe sovereign woman sees herself as the supreme volunteer, God's personal assistant. This woman assigns herself Head Chick in Charge to keep her corner of the universe from falling apart.
The big lie of the drive to control is that it empowers us. On the contrary, the truth is that controlling causes great fatigue.
The controlling woman we’ve been looking at throughout this course doesn’t have time to enjoy the people in her life, because she is too busy trying to fix them. She has a messiah complex that must be crucified so that she will finally be able to surrender her Junior God Badge willingly!
There are so many things we miss while being so controlling (such as peace, love, joy, and more), but probably the greatest loss from being so controlling is the possibility of missing Jesus.
