Going for a long drive with my family excites me a lot. But at the same time, I really get panicked during the travel. I have a travel phobia or whatever you call it but I can’t be at peace on a high way. I keep on telling (yelling at) my husband to watch out every car, truck, bike or bus that comes in speed from the opposite side. I sometimes squeeze his shoulder to reduce the speed. Even though he drives the car but in reality I control it. This sounds really crazy to me. But my dear husband got so much patience to deal with my “travel phobia” every time he takes me out. He says, “You just relax, I will take you safely, trust me.”
Often times we do the same thing with God. We want to enjoy our life journey but at the same time we are freaked out because of all the difficulties that come rushing from the other sides. All the fear that entangles us on the way. We yell at God, “God! Don’t you see I got financial crisis? Look! My child isn’t feeling well, God! Did you know I have got so much debt to pay, God! Did you see what the medical report says? Do you know my business is ruining, have you noticed? I have not succeeded in my life etc. We keep on telling him about the difficulties that we see as “threatening” to us. We let Him drive our life but we want to have control over it. But God is so patient with us. He knows our fears, our anxieties and our concerns. He loving says to us “Just relax, I will take you safely, trust me.”
Trusting Him simply means just giving your life completely in His hands and letting Him have control over it. There will be difficulties, rough roads, curves, and slopes but He will take you safely throughout the journey. There will be times you may face financial crisis, health issues, family disputes, bad breaks in your work place or business, difficulties in your career, your marriage, job or relationships. But when you know He is in control of every aspects of your life, you can just relax and enjoy the ride. You can be at peace even in the midst of the rough roads. Remember He is behind the wheel and He is in control of your life. So go on and have an adventurous journey!
