changing lanes

I have no idea why, but today my mind started wandering, and I ended up thinking about our drive into Dallas when moving.

I had the gps in my car so I was leading the way with Justin behind me.  I was doing just fine, listening to music and to my Sylvester meow from the passengers seat.  Then all of a sudden we hit traffic.  Yikes.

**Let me say here that in our hometown most roads are two lanes.  The interstate has two, maybe three lanes going each way at the most.**

Okay, so we hit traffic.  Five lanes each way, bumper to bumper, traffic.  My car is full to the ceiling with our stuff.  I have a kitty kennel and a litter box in my front seat.  I can see nothing of what is going on beside or behind me, even with the mirrors.  THEN the gps tells me to exit.  Problem.  I needed to jump over about three lanes of traffic that is flying down the road.

I knew I couldn't do it.  Not without risking a huge disaster.  So, I turned to someone that I trust for help.  I called Justin and had him tell me when it was safe to change lanes.  I could see nothing.  I had to completely trust him when I switched lanes.  He could see all around me and knew how to keep me safe.  He said "go now", and I went.  No asking questions, no hesitating.  I just went.


In my random mind wandering today.. I realized that in the same way that I had to trust Justin to help me change lanes, I need to trust my Heavenly Father in all the changes that are going to come in life.  He sees all around me.  He knows the big picture.  He knows my future.  He knows how to get me there safely.  I have to put my trust completely in Him when I can't see or figure out what is going on around me.  I can trust Him and His timing to get me where I need to be.  All I have to do is go when He says go.  Do what He says do.

That's it.  All I had to say.  :)
