My Lane

There was a truck in front of me this morning that would not get out of my way. I would change lanes, it would change lanes. I would get off on an exit, it would get off on an exit. The driver was going slightly under the speed limit and this was really driving me crazy. I needed to get to work and couldn’t seem to get away from this tractor trailer. Frustrated, I finally just pressed on the brakes and let it go far ahead of me.

As I was slowing down, I thought about how I have many trucks in my lane. There’s the truck called fear. The truck called pride. The truck called control. I could fill up a parking lot with all of my trucks.

Is there a truck blocking your lane too? Is there something in your life that’s holding you back from giving your life completely over to Christ? Even as Christians, we still can have tractor trailers in the way. We are far from perfect.  There are many things that can keep us from  walking a steady walk with the Lord. Thankfully, we have the best passenger right beside us, helping us to swerve, slow down or even stop sometimes.

We just have to be willing to hand over the wheel.

2 Timothy 1:7  For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.

  1. One time this happened to us and Emma said, “that truck is following us.” I reminded her that the truck was in front of us.
