      The “Control” Issue  

      Job 37:15 Do you know how God controls the clouds and makes His lightning flash?

      I believe each of us likes to be "in control" of our lives,
      and we want to know where we are going.  This is definitely true for me, especially if I am going to take a car trip.  I always get the map out, plot out my course and know exactly where I will be driving.

      When I had the opportunity to spend a week end at an Emmaus
      retreat, I was excited.  "Where is the retreat held?" I asked.  My sponsors were vague, but I wanted details! Where would it be, what would we do, etc., etc., etc.!!

       Well, the night we left for the retreat I just got in the
      car and let them drive. I had no idea where I was going, nor had  I mapped a course on a road map.  I trusted my sponsors to get me to the correct destination on time and in good shape.  The road was narrow and the nighttime sky descended upon us, but I no longer cared about details, because I trusted the driver. TRUST- what an important thing this is.

      Am I willing to turn over the drivers seat of my life to
      God? To allow Him to get me to my destination? I know my final destination is Heaven, but is it necessary for me to know every detail on the road there? Don't I trust God enough to know He'll be right beside me, no matter the twists on life's road or how suddenly darkness
      can descend?

      Sometimes, I try to give God the road map and tell Him the
      way! How silly!  He is more "in control" than I am! God is the sponsor of my life, and I need to let Him stay in the driver's seat, taking me down life's road of surprises.
