As we were driving in the car yesterday, this song came on the radio. I had never heard it before, and as I listened to the lyrics, it really touched my heart. The chorus of this song is this:
Jesus take the wheel, take it from my hands
'cause I can't do this on my own.
I'm letting go, so give me one more chance
Save me from this road I'm on,
Oh, Jesus take the wheel.
Our family has been going through a lot lately, and letting go and giving it all to God, who has the perfect plan, has not been easy. However, I know that we will make it through, if we just let Jesus 'take the wheel'.
As soon as we have taken matters into our own hands, we are going no where. As soon as we give Jesus the wheel, He guides us, drives us, and takes care of us. Holding your hand in a balled fist won't help, either. You have to give God whatever is going on. If we don't, we can become shattered, ruined, and desperate.
Although this is easy to say, it is very hard to do. I know so many times I will pray, "Ok, God, please take this burden from me. I can't bear it any longer and I need You to help me...." and then, a few days later, I am holding onto that burden again. It really is hard, but it can be accomplished.
Remember Who holds the world in His hands.......
Enjoy the song, sung by Carrie Underwood (which, by the way, I was not familiar with until I heard this song!)
And this was a cute little video of a little girl singing to this song. Just the first few seconds are really cute. :)
