Then today I realized as long as I was driving and in control, I couldn't see the details. I missed all of it.
It's similar in our relationship with God. When we seek total control of our lives and agenda, it's difficult to let go and let God take over. I think a lot of us really just want to sit in the back seat. We want God to take over our lives and teach us how to be more like Jesus. We know the peace and contentment we seek will come.
But we continue to tap God on the shoulder, demand the car be stopped so we can jump back in the driver's seat. And then we miss the details of life. They're gone in an instant.
May we loosen our grip on our lives today. God, take control of our lives.
We're just along for the ride.
