The Blessings of a Truck
By Peggy Yengling

Have you ever been behind a large truck, unable to get over to the next lane to pass it? What thoughts crossed your mind? "Hurry up." "I can't see what's ahead." "Why does it keep braking?" "I can't see the signs and I might miss something."

Sometimes, it's that way with our relationship with God. Occasionally, we see God as that big truck up ahead, blocking our view and slowing us down. We want to speed things up. We want to see what things lie ahead for us and we certainly don't want to get sidetracked along the way!

Just as we want to have a clear view of road markers, we want to have our personal goals in full view so we can keep track of our journey and stay on course. When we follow that truck, we don't realize that the truck's large windows enable its driver to see a broad expanse of the area, allowing him to determine when it's important to slow down to avoid danger. That truck can lead us, if we let it. It's difficult to slow down and follow, especially when we can't see the road signs or be sure of the road conditions up ahead. But, sometimes we have to take a deep breath and just let the truck lead. We have to trust that the driver of the truck knows what he's doing and rely on his judgement. Like the truck leading the car, God can be our guide - if we let him. He knows where we should turn, when we need to ease up and when it's time to forge ahead. Like the truck with large windows, God has a panoramic view (of our lives) and can see the "whole picture." He will help us through life's detours and around the roadblocks on our journey. If we stay focused on God, and trust him to lead the way, he will lead us on a wonderful and meaningful journey, and guide us safely to our destination.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
