Auto Pilot

The Fog horns are blowing. Visibility is about 20 feet in front of us.

There are no signs of the the oil barges that have speckled the landscape of the Gulf for the past 8 hours.

We are no longer on auto pilot.

So many times in our lives, we, too, are on auto pilot. We just live a well programmed life. One that seems to not need a Captain at the helm. We read the Word, go to Church, take the kids to school, do the laundry, cook the meals and pay the bills. Our live runs smoothly. We are on auto pilot.

Then the FOG comes.

We can’t see much ahead of us…we MUST turn to the Captain to steer the boat.

Our God is the mighty Captain! He knows the controls of the ship, he knows what is best for it’s passengers…For their safety and Happiness.

“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11”

Whatever your FOG is…give the Captain back the helm and let him Steer the course. Be intentional to give it up! Whether it’s a fog of mundaneness or a fog of tragedy in your life…Give up the helm!
