Who is really at the Wheel?
I was watching a video of how to deal with food cravings while I am trying to lose weight and one sentence really struck a chord with me. “You are at the wheel, you are in control”. Am I really? The song Carrie Underwood – Jesus take the wheel tells of a lady who has taken over the driving and has stopped allowing God to have the control. We all like to know what is going to happen and we all like trying to be sure that our choices are good ones, but the times in the past that I have taken back control of my life from God have not always ended up being good. There has been a lot of bad, mostly bad. I learnt from my experience that is the good part, but ultimately bad because I missed out so much from trusting God and allowing him to direct my path.
When I am in control I am running blind. I cannot see what is around the next corner, the next day but Jesus can. We all need to take stock of our lives and our decisions and check to see who is really at the wheel.
