At the age of 40, life came to a screeching halt when I realized that I was so busy trying to be everything to everyone in my life I had no one around me that seemed to care about taking care of me. I entered a trial in my life where I needed someone like I had been my whole life to come in and save the day. Unfortunately, that is when I realized that there was no one. That was the day when I heard God asking me if I was finally ready to get out of the driver’s seat so He could take care of me like no one in this world is capable of doing. I slammed my foot on the brakes, and threw my life into park so fast that everything around me fell straight to the floor. To be honest, I had never in my life sat in the passenger seat and let anyone else drive. But I can tell you one thing, my shoulders felt so light that day, I actually thought it would be more appropriate to fly instead of drive from this point on.
Each morning, I can wake up and ask God what He needs me to accomplish and not worry about all the other stuff. Not being able to address everything that has loose ends would have previously drove me to a fit but now I can simply rest in knowing God is, was, and always will be in control.
Do you need to throw your car into park as well?
