Ride With Me Lord



Hop in Lord,
I want you to ride with me today.
You can ride shot-gun,
if you don't mind;
I feel better when
I'm in control.
Feel free to give me directions
if You'd like.
I'm always open to
whatever You'd like to do.

Traffic's kind of heavy
today Lord.
I really don't like driving
with all those big trucks whizzing by.
Do you think it's going to rain?
The clouds look awfully dark.
Winds picking up too,
hard to keep the car
headed in a straight line.
Here comes the rain;
I really hate it when
it pours so hard you can
hardly see the road.
I think I'll pull over
for a minute - just to,
you know, be safe.

Would you mind doing
the driving Lord?
I'd be happy to sit
in the back seat.
Thanks.

This is better somehow Lord.
Look, the rain has stopped
and the clouds are beginning to part.
I see blue sky.
I think I'll roll down the window
and let the wind blow
in my face.
It feels good to just sit back
and let You do the driving Lord.
I feel safe and secure
even in the storm.

Blessings,
Linda

Ah, yes! We really don't want the Lord driving, do we?

Beautiful. You know, Linda, I talk to God all the time when I am driving, but this takes it to a whole new level and makes me think I should shift into the passenger seat a lot more.
I am so glad to see you back. I miss you!

Such wonderful words ~ I always take the Lord with me, anywhere I go.

I love this, dear friend. It is such a great analogy, and something that should be so much easier to do than it is, and the result is so much better when we do!

Have a great day!! How's the weather where you are these days? And how's your house coming along?

Wonderful, Linda.

"Feel free to give me directions
if You'd like.

There's quite a little assumption, under that, don't you think? I know there is for me.

Love you, my friend. Glad to see you here.
