Moving the steering wheel

At church this week, that pastor talked about how at an amusement park kids enjoy the rides where they get to drive cars.

They turn the steering wheel back and forth, thinking that they are in control.

However, the rides are either on a track or going around in circles like a merry-go-round.

It's like us, really. We act like we have control of our lives, but we really are just spinning the wheel and going no where. Until we give up control of the wheel to Jesus, that's when we get off the ride and starting really going somewhere.

Carrie Underwood was famous for the song, "Jesus Take the Wheel," when really Jesus already has the wheel. He's in control. Although we have freedom to move and freedom to make choices, giving God control is when we really start to go somewhere.
