A couple of years ago when the Kirby’s were here from India I let Kallie drive up I-17.


I could not have picked a worse time….


Rush hour traffic….


Most of you probably know just how it is on I-17 from about the 101 to Anthem Way…


Bumper to bumper…. Big trucks… little trucks…


Cars of all description…. Sane drivers… insane drivers…


And Kallie is driving…


There are not too many things that scare me.. but that day I got scared>


We were running on the inside lane…. She is passing a semi… cars all around us… and she keeps moving closer to those great big tires on that truck.


I am getting very nervous… she knows I am nervous…


The more nervous I become the more she becomes…


I look over at her… she is setting straight up with both hands locked on the wheel.


She looks scared to death… and that’s what I am thinking we are close to… death!


Her knuckles are turning white…. That is saying a lot seeing how she has beautiful brown skin…


I’m turning whiter…


She starts to perspire… I start to sweat!


I thought, o God, get us out of here.



My actions and reactions was making it all much worse than it was.. I did not have confidence in Kallie’s abilty to drive at that moment.


God wants us to fully trust in Him.


He is the driver… we are the passenger…


He is the pilot…. We are the co-pilot….


He knows just how to get us to where we need to be…


He planned it all out before we were ever born.
