The prompt this week is a quote: “I don’t want to be a passenger in my own life.” (Diane Ackerman)
What does this mean to me? Gosh.
The quote seems to be saying “I want to be in control – I want to be driving.”
But if that’s what it’s saying, I can’t say that I agree. I mean, of course I want to be in control of my own life, that is a very human drive. But is it really what’s best for me? Shouldn’t God be in control? Of all things? Shouldn’t He be driving?
You know those bumper stickers that say “God is my copilot”? And then there are some that say “If God is your copilot…switch seats.” I’m not a fan of Battling Christian Bumper Stickers, but that one has always made me chuckle, because think it’s true. God should be the pilot, the driver.
I’ll be His passenger any day.
