My Drive Home to Mt Dora

The drive from Gainesville to Mt Dora is one that I often take. The more I think about it I could drive it with my eyes closed.

Today, while I was driving down i75, all I could do was sit and talk to Papa. Whether it was through the words in the music or quiet prayers to Him, I
spent that hour and a half with our God. It’s funny how I catch myself singing some of the most beautiful love songs written to a woman by her lover as if I have written them myself. . . just for our King. About halfway through the drive a song came on.
A song I have heard a thousand times and usually skip over because i
t is so overplayed. This time, however, I let it play. I listened to the words by ‘Big Daddy Weave’ and tears began to overwhelm me. In their song What Life Would Be Like they say,
He made the lame walk and the dumb talk
And He opened blinded eyes to see That the sun rises on His time Yet He knows our deepest desperate need.
These words stuck out to me today and while I was sitting there thinking about my life and all the crazy bumps in it, I began to smile because I am not in control. As much as I stress about getting work resumes in, spending time with family, the health of my loved ones, and my education I have yet to remember that God is in control.

The sun rises on His time,” that just puts a smile on my face. =] I immediately wrote my cousin Gabe and told him about those words.
“I am listening to this song and it just reminds me that this WHOLE earth is God’s... All of it, He knows it all and made it all.
“It is so encouraging. . . HIS LOVE,” I said to him...
