back seat driver
Anyway, as I was reflecting on that, I started laughing because I knew Jesus was sitting next to me laughing. "Really, Maricris, you hate back seat drivers? What have you been doing to me over the past few weeks??" UGH slam the brakes! I've been called out. I'm all about "Jesus taking the wheel," but I end up acting as if I'm smarter than His GPS (not that God needs one....but you know....).
Maricris on the daily: "Lord, how about we try this?" "Jesus, I'm thinking we go this direction." "Watch out, You're going into a path unknown!" "Be careful, this area is sketchy..."
Of alllllll the people in the world, Jesus knows where He's going. He has always known where He is going to take us. We have the freedom to roll with it. We have the will to follow. I've done that "lead my own journey" thing already. Psh, overrated. It took me to a few bad turns and a dead end just to end up back where I started. Why waste your time when you have someone you can trust to drive and guide you? Yes, I am human. I will let God know where I'd like to stop and when I need a break. I'll share my opinions with Him when I feel it's appropriate. I still might back seat drive a little. I'll be more sensitive and watch myself though. So on a true road trip with Jesus, I will let Him drive and I'm going to enjoy the scenery - dry deserts, luscious falls, heavy rainfall, beaming sunshine, everything.
What's #30daysofmystagogia? You can refer back to my blog on "About Time" to understand the meaning behind all of this.
