Backseat driver...

Heeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrrrrreeeeeeeeeee's Joshie.

Well I'm back, at least for now. It has been a while since I last felt convicted enough to spill my guts to ya'll. I don't think it is because I haven't had anything to say, but more I didn't want to be fake and force something. When that happens, people know, readers can hear inflection in the tone of a piece. You are opening your heart and soul to them, and if your not genuine you come across as a poser or a hypocrite. That is something I will never be accused of being. If anything, I am GENUINE.

So when you do get a topic that really moves you, its not just your right to put it out there, but its your responsibility to do so. Lots has happened in my life since the last time I posted, but if you have read all of my previous blogs, you will know that they are not about what is going on in my personal life. They are ideas, beliefs, convictions, and dreams. So if your looking for what I had for dinner last night, or what problems/blessings that have been happening, this is not where you will find it.

I started this blog as a sports themed way of looking at life. It has kind of evolved into something that I can step back and look at my life and changes that need to be made. Life in the Cheap Seats, for the non sports fans, are in the nose bleed section. So high that you can see everything happening at once, take note, and decide what needs to be fixed. There is a reason that teams have coaches or coordinators in the skybox. That gives them a better prospective, then right there on the sideline.

I had one of those inspired moments on my way into work this morning. I am sure that we have all been in this situation before. You're driving along listening to the radio, when a song you have never really heard before comes on. As you listen to the song, you are not sure what to think about it. Then BAM, a line hits you like a ton of bricks. I have heard things like this said before, but I don't know if I have ever heard this put this way before.

Don't tell your big problems to your God, tell your problems about your Big God.

Take minute and let that sink in.

God already knows what we going though, he doesn't need us to tell him about them. He is bigger than any problems that we are going through at any given point of your life. All you have to do is let him take care of them. This is a on going problem. I haven't figured out how to do this. We all have some major life altering problems that we go through. I know when we are in the middle of these problems, problems so dark that you cant see the light, its hard to release them and let the big guy take of them. He is ready and willing to handle anything we give him, but we have to fully give it away. We can't hold on to part of it and worry about the situation.

Like is said, this is a work in progress. I am not good at letting go. I need to be in control. If I give up control, I have no say in what happens. I like to control my life. I feel like I need to have a say in what happens. That has to change. Once we get in the passenger seat and let him do the driving, we have no control, so happens, happens.

I Hope this all makes sense, its not every day that something kicks your butt, and makes you rethink the way you handle everything in your life.

See ya next time on Life in the Cheap Seats.
