God is my Pilot, Not Co-Pilot

Last night after watching a lecture on the healing power of stillness, I was reminded of a popular book written years ago entitled “God is my Co-pilot”, which went on to become bumper stickers on many cars!  Even back then, I would question that phrase.  The lecturer said there were times when she thought of herself as the CEO of her life and God as the Divine Assistant that she would turn to from time to time.

The answer to any challenge I am addressing isn’t revealed to me until I see that God is the CEO, not the other way around.  Today I will listen more and realize it is through listening, not trying to figure things out, that my understanding is increased.  Psalm 5:11 states “But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy.  Spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may rejoice in you.”
