Many years ago, I recall traveling to St. Louis for a youth church choir trip. Our director led this caravan with three other vehicles in tow along the winding highways. At one point, with us all being in the far left lane, the director realized we needed to take the next exit, thus, taking all four vehicles across three lanes of traffic.
There are numerous occasions where life throws us a curve. Health issues. Job stuff. Family matters. Financial stresses. Spiritual moments. We may find ourselves traveling along the smooth journey only then, within seconds, having to make a quick veering in a different direction. With the situation moving beyond our control and when we become unsure of the road ahead, it is at this time that we need to take our foot off the accelerator, and let God place His there instead.
Lord, along every curve in this journey called life, we ask for Your direction and control. In Your holy name I pray, Amen.
