Trip for a Lifetime: Day 3

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6

I have heard the term "new normal" for most of my life. I had never really evaluated what it meant. I know that on this trip there are a lot of things new. I also know they are NOT normal. It has caused me to determine that my vehicle (life) has been on cruise control. This change of direction has forced me to take it off of cruise. It has also has caused me to realize that I haven't been consulting with my guide (Holy Spirit) much. I been setting out on my own way too many times.

Yesterday I said I was going to be intentional about seeking the counsel of my guide (Holy Spirit). This is what I learned and it's not all good...

There have been times that I had put Him in the trunk only getting Him out when I needed Him or wanted to show Him off. I am glad to say that this was not normal but it still did occur.

Sometimes I would let him ride in the back seat. He is such a gentleman that he would never become a backseat driver. The problem with him being in the back was it was difficult to carry on a conversation. I couldn't always hear what he was saying and it was hard to get each other's attention.

At other times I would let him ride in the passenger seat. When he was up beside me I could hear him much easier. It was easier to carry on a conversation. It was so refreshing to be able to ask and receive directions. He knew where the danger was going to be and what to pay attention to and what to ignore. I do let him ride there more times than not. Here he becomes such a great friend to have along for the ride

There have been times when he was asked if He could drive, but it is so hard to give up control. When He rides in front I begin to trust Him more and more. His decision making is better than mine. I still like being in control. To let him have the steering wheel is very hard to do. When I let Him drive I get to see my surroundings from a different place. I have a whole new perspective on life. This part of the trip becomes so relaxing and rewarding. How I long to be here more often but seem to be a control freak.

Where does your guide ride?!
