I had an interesting experience tonight. My wife picked me up at football practice and we rode together to a church event. It was great, but that wasn’t the interesting part. When we returned to the high school, I got in my car and naturally followed her out of the parking lot.
All I noticed as we drove home was her tail lights. Although I was doing all the things I normally do as I drive: shift gears, accelerate, brake, steer, I realized that I did not need to concentrate on my path. I simply needed to follow the tail lights.
What if we followed this same pattern in our relationship with God? What if we let Him define our path and just “followed His tail lights”? Perhaps we’d be free to do all the things that make up our lives with a focus on the moment and not what is coming next. We’d be able to “drive” without fear because we’d know the road is safe.
Back to following my wife. You know where she led me, right? Home, of course.
