I have had the privilege of teaching Jennifer to drive in the past year. During the driving sessions I have learnt a lot about myself and it has challenged me to think about three things in particular.
It has challenged me to let go off the controls, stop driving from the passenger's seat, and learning to trust the learner driver. The positive side to this is seeing the learner driver grow and develop in self-confidence.
Similarly, as I reflect on God being our Father and we His children, how much more do we need to trust in Him. Even though He gives us the controls of life to grow and develop our character, He desires that we trust in Him. Proverbs 3 v 5 & 6 summarises this really well.
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways submit to him; and he will make your paths straight."
