Are You Headed For The Ditch?
When I was a little girl approximately 4 years old, my mom and I were about to leave home, when she realized that she needed to run back into the house for something. When she jumped out of the car to go back into the house, I quickly jumped into the driver’s seat of our new salmon-colored Ford car. I put the car in drive and headed straight for the ditch, barely missing our mailbox while gripping the steering wheel as though I knew what I was doing.
I probably had seen my mom and dad do this at least a hundred times or more, so I decided that I could do it too. Needless to say when my mom came out of the house, she was in total shock, and thankful all at the same time that I was alive. I think the only reason I didn’t get a spanking for my little escapade that day, was that my mom was so relieved that I was still all in one piece.
You see even as adults if left to our own devices we would drive our lives straight into the ditch. So many times we want to do just as I did as a child. We want God to get out of the driver’s seat so that we can take over. Trust me, when I tell you, that the safest thing that we can do, is ask Jesus to take the wheel. Not only should we ask Him to take the wheel, but also to keep the wheel, because He can see a lot further down the road than we can. He knows where the potholes are, the curves as well as the detours and He knows our destination and we don’t.
What I am saying to you today, is to trust God with your life. He knows what He is doing, and He knows your purpose for coming to this planet. Allow Him the space and time to reveal those things to you, as He sees that you are ready to handle them. Then and only then will you get to experience all that He has in store for you. He’s the ultimate chauffeur. Stress less and enjoy the ride, you are headed for a safe arrival.–

Dedicated to Leading Women to Live Victoriously by Empowering them to Step into Greatness.
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;
6 in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.[a
8 Trust in him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge.
7 “But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him.
23 The Lord makes firm the steps of the one who delights in him;
24 though he may stumble, he will not fall, for the Lord upholds him with his hand.
21 Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.”
11 The Lord will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.
8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you.
