Do you enjoy driving on snowy roads? Or does just reading that question add stress to your life? I am not a fan of driving on snowy roads. My hands ache from holding the steering wheel so tightly. Over the years my fear has lessened. I am always thankful when the winter is done though. I much prefer clear roads.
Earlier this month, I was on my way to a MOPS meeting and the roads were snowy. My snowy road mentality kicked in. I was very alert. When I need to stop for a red light, I will pump my breaks instead of slamming on them. I tend to go slower when the roads are snowy and try not to stress when people pass me. I am a very cautious driver in the snow. As I was tightly holding the steering wheel on the way to the meeting, I thought to myself “Why don’t I always take caution while driving?” Any time I am out on the road, I need to be cautious. Before you start to wonder, I do pay attention when I am driving on other roads. But, I don’t feel like I need to be as alert. Why is that? There are rarely any obstacles in the way when the roads are clear.
As I reflected more, I realized that driving on different types of roads is a lot like life. There are roads in life that we need to be more alert because of obstacles in our way. The obstacles can include an injury, loss of a loved one, health problems, financial struggles, etc. When we are traveling on this road of life, we need to make sure we are digging into God’s word and spending time on our knees with Him. It is the only way we can get through the tough times we are facing.
I feel like we need to always be alert no matter what road we are on. We need Jesus every step of the way even when we may not be facing an obstacle. Let’s position ourselves to be on the lookout for how God is working in the “snowy roads” and “clear roads” in our lives. We need to be alert to others around us so that we don’t get too wrapped up in ourselves and what we are experiencing.
The next time you are out driving around, please ask yourself “How is my driving?” Will you join me in being more aware of how God is working? Will you join me in driving the roads of life depending only on God’s strength and not your own?
