Take the Wheel

By Linda Tancs

Singer Carrie Underwood recorded a song entitled “Jesus, Take the Wheel.” It’s about letting go, letting God handle the situation. During hard times we cry out to Jesus to take the wheel, steer us where He wants us to go. And sometimes, that request may be greeted with silence. Does that mean God doesn’t care? Of course not. Maybe you’re asking God to do something you could easily do yourself (Proverbs 13:4). Perhaps He wants you to take the wheel. In other words, step out and find out. Get in the driver’s seat.
