It seems that two elderly women were out driving in a large car. Both could barely see over the dashboard. As they were cruising along, they came to an intersection. The stoplight was red but they just went on through.
The woman in the passenger seat thought to herself, "I must be losing it. I could have sworn we drove thru that red light!"
They drove a few more minutes they came to another intersection, the light was red, and again they went right through. This time, the passenger was almost sure that the light had been red, but was also concerned that she might be seeing things. She was getting nervous and decided to pay very close attention. At the next intersection, sure enough, the light was definitely red and they blew right through it.
She turned to the other woman and said, "Grace! Did you know that you ran through three red lights in a row? You could have killed us!"
Grace turned to her and said, "Oh! Mercy! Am I driving?"
Who or what has taken control of your life?
Are you out of control, is your life taking you places you really don't want to go?
If it is, perhaps you need to bring your life back where it needs to be. It's not just in humorous stories that these things happen, though they help us see the truth about life in a very real way. I ran across the following little story that possibly brings this a step closer to our hearts.
My wife and I were sitting in the living room and I said to her, "Just so you know, I never want to live in a vegetative state, dependent on some machine and fluids pumped into me. If that ever happens, just pull the plug." She immediately got up, unplugged the TV and threw out all of my coffee!
So, who's driving the "car" of your life?
Is it you, God, someone or something else, or do you even know?
I saw a bumper sticker awhile back that said, "If God is your co-pilot then change seats!" Where is God in your life?
