staying in the lines

There is no one like the God of Jeshurun, who rides across the heavens to help you and on the clouds in His majesty." Deuteronomy 33:26

Whoa! Who did you park next to this morning?  Your car is all over the line!"

Actually, i didn't park next to anyone.  The parking lot was practically empty when i got to school. Embarrassed, i flew out to straighten up my car.  But the cars beside me had followed suit, and i couldn't move. My sloppy parking had rubbed off on them.

Boundaries are good.  But like in the parking lot, just knowing and seeing them don't mean we will abide by them.  I definitely need more help.

God and His Word provide boundaries for us in living an abundant, joyful life.  Like with my parking, i need the guidance of an expert driver to help stay within the lines.  I need God in the Driver seat of my life.

Father, i want to be parked right next to You at all times.  Left on my own, i have a tendency to cross the boundaries of love-hate, giving-keeping, joy-anger, sharing-taking, helping-ignoring, fear-trust.  The closer i am to You, the better i am in making strong, good decisions.  Surround me, and keep me straight, Father.  Thank You!

have a joy-filled day!
