Having grown up among the hills of New England I was amazed as I drove across North Texas and discovered a stretch of road without a rise or even a curve as far as I could see! The greatest danger was not in encountering the unexpected around a bend but in falling asleep at the wheel.
The same can happen during some parts of our lives. An astonishing sameness of daily routine can dominate our outlook till we are lulled into a spiritual drowsiness. We become so dulled by the changeless landscape of life that we lose sight of our destination. But when the hurricane winds of life blow we must run to the anchor of our hope – Jesus Christ. He will never fall asleep at the wheel. Give him the driver’s seat in your life and He will safely steer you home!
