Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.
Despite the fact that my husband is an excellent driver, I found myself telling him to slow down and started gasping if another car got to close to our bumper. At times I wished I had a steering wheel on the passenger side to help out. When we arrived home a few hours later I felt guilty for criticizing his driving. He knew the road well and got us home safely.
Sometimes I’m guilty of backseat driving in my spiritual life as well. God is in the driver’s seat but when the storms of life hit or things go too fast or too slow for my liking, I start to question his driving ability. I try to take over.
With that in mind, instead of starting the year with a resolution, I decided to start with a prayer instead. I simply asked God to guide my life and help me follow his will in the New Year. In 2014, I want my goals to be aligned with his plans for my life. He’s the driver, so I’ll let him lead. After all, he knows the road better than I do.
What are some goals you have for 2014? Please feel free to share. J
Thank you for reading and keep shining for Him!
