I am by no means knocking any songs or songwriters; it is just that sometimes when I listen to songs, I really analyze the lyrics. Like in the classic, “Walk with Me, Lord,” the lyrics say, “While I’m on this tedious journey, I want Jesus to walk with me.” I understand the intent behind the lyrics, but I believe that today many of us are just taking it a little too literally, asking God along for the ride and not really wanting to walk with Him. I think many people, including myself, at times, just want God to come with us and fix the mistakes along the way rather than having Him lead the journey.
Do you let Jesus take the lead? Be honest with yourself. When we give God all of the control, we do not really know where He is leading us; it could be to some place that is unfamiliar and uncomfortable. Nevertheless, we should know that if He leads us there, it is for our own good. I read a bumper sticker once that said, “If God is your co-pilot, SWITCH SEATS!” God should be leading us as we walk with Him. I cannot promise that the journey will be any less tedious, but it will be successful. Ms. EV
