Backseat Driver

True Story: I am a horrible passenger. I don’t mean to be, but I seriously do not feel safe sitting close to the white line! I don’t know if it’s an anxiety thing or something with my perception, but I feel like I’m about to land in the ditch most of the time (Surely it’s not the fault of anyone’s driving 😜). I try to keep my mouth shut and just let the other person drive, but sometimes I do make some noise when I feel especially close to danger! For this reason, I’d much rather be the driver when given the opportunity. I may be scaring my passengers half to death, but I feel safer and in control!

Sometimes life feels the same way. I try to be a quiet passenger and just trust the Lord’s driving. But when I’m not sure where we’re going, or the road makes me feel nervous, I might question or complain. And I might even try to take over the driver’s seat. That’s never a good idea, though, because I’m bound to make a wreck of things without His help. I might feel in control for a little while, but I don’t really know where I’m going. God knows the road best because He designed it to get me exactly where He wants me to be. I can always trust His driving and need to give Him full control!
