Control Issues

A thought from riding the motorcycle... Who's in control? The times that I had the most difficulty riding were the times that Mr. Philpott and I were both trying to steer. Who determines the direction that we are going in our lives? Are we fighting again the Lord's leading even though we intellectually know that He knows what is best for us? I found that I preferred sitting on the back letting Mr.Philpott take full control rather than trying to do it myself. The ride was much more smooth that way. Think about it...are you trying to steer yourself while letting God keep a hand on the handlebars or are you surrendering completely to Him so you can have a more enjoyable experience?
