Interesting thing happens when we are given space to be still and listen, our spiritual lens becomes clear and we begin to understand that everything surrounding us has a much deeper meaning. Sometimes things happen in our life and we are left wondering why, how, when, what and where did things get so out of control. This weekend as I drove my car into the car wash and followed the sign to put my car in neutral, release my foot from the brake pedal, and take my hands off the steering wheel I realized how often we want to hold on to what other people have created in our lives, when in reality we need to simply let go. Right before I took my hand off the steering wheel, the guide took control of my car and jerked my grip off the wheel. As the water pounded, the soap blinded my view, the brushes rocked and rolled the car I realized that in order for the car wash to do what it was designed to do I needed to let go. No grip on the wheel. No foot pressing on the brake. The gear in neutral so that the guide could be in control. As the final stream of water rinsed off the windshield I began to see daylight. I could see the sun shining through the other side of the car wash. I could see the green light that said, GO. And I was reminded that in the middle of chaos and confusion, in the middle of things that rock us and shake us to the core, there is a God that is in control, that sits on the throne and works all things together for HIS good for those that LOVE HIM. Sometimes we just need to be still, take our foot off the brake, and release our grip from the wheel and let the LORD take control. What are you holding on to today that is a burden to your soul? Let go, let GOD guide you to the other side and watch where HE will take you!
