Jesus Take the Wheel

Traveling down the road of life without letting Jesus take the wheel is like driving into the ditch.

I’m done driving into the ditch!

I can’t even begin to count how many times my life ended up in the ditch. I drove into the same ditch over and over again. I continuously made the same unhealthy choices along the road of life.

I went through great pain and endured tremendous sorrow and anguish. However, I still failed to let Jesus take the Wheel and drive me down the road of life.

It didn’t seem to matter how many times unhealthy choices affected me.  It didn’t seem to matter how bad the effects were on me.  I didn’t listen to Jesus and was very stubborn in my ways.

I know how to drive!

The Effects of Unhealthy Choices

The effects of not listening to Jesus word and continuously making unhealthy choices was devastating.

I have endured physical and mental abuse, and my head was split open requiring over 20 stitches. I ran away in fear for my life from domestic violence, was flat broke, and became homeless. At one point, I lost absolutely everything including my children.

I’ve had a very bumpy ride with a lot of twists and turns along the way. I didn’t have a good roadmap for the trip. The directions were lousy since I grew up in a Dysfunctional Family.

I drove along the road of life blindly without spiritual guidance. I choose bad directions in life to take and wasted years of my life being afraid, confused and completely lost.

Jesus Take the Wheel

God has given us freedom of choice in the direction we will take in life, and no one can take it from us. They can beat you over the head with their thoughts, ideas, and ways. You still get to choose what direction to take in your life.

I have finally decided to let Jesus take the Wheel. I let him decide what direction to travel in life. I became tired of wasting this precious life given to me. I became worn out and downtrodden from living a life of pain and sorrow. I was exhausted from driving into the same ditch repeatedly. I already knew what the results were going to be.

New Road Map for Life

I use God’s word “The Bible” as a new roadmap for life. His holy Word gives us life and life more abundantly. I’ve learned it’s best to walk in love for one another and to do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

Don’t drive around blindly without Jesus at the wheel.

When you decide to let, Jesus at the Wheel, he will drive you down the road of life. The Lord will give you salvation for your soul so your journey will end safely. His strength will allow you to make it through all of those twists, and turns and the difficult situations that arise in life.

The Lord will give you hope for the ride and place his everlasting love in your heart. Then you can have assurance in knowing that the Lord will not drive you into the ditch.


Then you can turn on the radio, play some music and rejoice. I love music. Crank it up and sing along. It will lift your spirits. Praise the Lord for all of the wonderful things he has done for you. Praise the Lord for he alone is worthy of Praise.

  1. Thanks for this thoughtful post. I’ve often thought that I “knew how to drive” and in fact was a gifted “driver”, so I haven’t always let Jesus take the “wheel” of the “vehicle” that I was using for my ministry. It has been a challenging lesson for me to learn that this wasn’t very effective in what I was seeking to do in my service for God’s glory. I express the point of my learning in a recent statement on my website entitled “Living By the Spirit”, which you can see at .
