We Must FOLLOW, not co-lead

I took this in '09 at Spring Mill State Park on a camping trip.  See 2 of our boys standing upstream?



 We've all seen the bumper stickers that say
God is my co-pilot.

Sounds spiritual, but it's simply not true.

The truth is ... on this journey through life
{walking by faith, not by sight}
God IS the pilot.

He's in the driver's seat
{right where I want Him to be}.

We must ride along, not fretting as he navigates us
through the twists & turns of life.
We must follow, not co-lead.
{Where He leads me, I will follow.}

We are NOT in charge of this journey.
We are called to restfully follow.
Our Pilot is completely trustworthy.
{What time I am afraid, I will trust in Him.}

He, that breathed the very breath of life into our bodies,
is well-capable of navigating us through the turbulence.
{Being confident of this very thing, that He which hath begun 
a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.}

We can rest in the very situation where HE has lovingly placed us, 
knowing when we do, we'll find freedom that ONLY comes from following.
{Where He leads me, I will follow.}

A man's heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps.
~Proverbs 16:9 

I have taught you in the way of wisdom;
I have led you in right paths.
~Proverbs 4:11



{inspired from my morning devotion ~
More Joy for the Journey}
