230- I Give Him the Leadership over my Life

 

In the past century, a minister sat beside the driver of a wagon that was driven by two horses. The driver was a drunken man and he was talking to the minister about horses and wagons. The wagon came to a big slope. The minister asked, "What would happen if you lost control over the horses?"

"Well surely die But Ive experience with horses and shant lose control", replied the driver.

The minister sat quietly for a moment and asked, "What if I had more experience than you and told you that youre losing control over the horses?"

The man answered, "In that case, Id surely give you the leadership."

The minister then said smiling, "Well, I assure you that our Lord, Jesus Christ, has the best leadership over our lives. Why do you not give Him the leadership over your life?"

You are my Guide in my trip

What can frighten me in this life?

My trip is too long and full of troubles but You are my Guide.

I'm very weak and my enemy is very strong.

But I'll be hidden in You, the Conqueror.

All forsook me but You call me by my name.

You carry me on Your shoulders.

You guide me by day and enlighten me by night.

 The grave awaits me but You raise me through Your Cross.

You grant me the delight of Your Resurrection.

You know all my past life and You prepare my future.

How can I be afraid while You carry my soul

And bring it from its agony to share with You Your glory!
