Life Driving 101

by Patty Wysong  
7/23/2008 / Devotionals

With my son just finishing Drivers Ed and starting to drive, and a daughter hot on his heels, I've been giving them instruction and pointers as I drive. Today's tidbit was going to be where to look when a car is coming toward you on a narrow, two lane road. But as I opened my mouth to start sharing my great wisdom, God flashed His neon 'Listen up!' sign that He has just for me.

You tend to steer toward what you're looking at, so if you focus on the car coming toward you, you'll run right into it. If you focus on the center line, you'll either hug the center line or ride right in the middle of the road, and we all know that straddling the line just doesn't work--especially when someone's zooming at you. So, you look at the white line or right down the center of your lane.

I seem to be in a transition time in my life, and I've been concerned about following the right path. I don't want to go the wrong way and I don't want to run into, or even scrape against, something. I want to follow God's way for me and I don't want to straddle a boundary line He has set out.

"Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance, and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God."
Hebrews 12:2 (NAS)

I never did share with the kids where to look while drivingI was too busy absorbing God's reminder that if I just focus on Him, and Him alone, I won't have to worry about crossing the line into on-coming traffic. Keeping my eyes fixed firmly on Him will help hold my course steady.
