Shortly after I graduated from high school, I found myself on the upside of the Baytown tunnel at a dead stop due to a wreck. With a school bus just behind me, I found a challenge to take my foot off the brake and onto the gas pedal while letting out the clutch when time came for us to exit the tunnel. Yes, I made it without backing into or under the school bus. Later, I found myself in a similar situation. I was on the upside of a tunnel in my little sports car. This time I had no worries, for I was being towed by my father. I did not have to worry about rolling backwards. All I had to do was steer the car behind my father. He did all the work.
Our lives should be lived out being towed by the Heavenly Father. All we need to do is to follow His lead.
Proverbs 3:5-6 (NIV)
5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;
6 in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.
