Jesus Takes The Wheel


This song sung by Carrie Underwood (American Idol winner) speaks about a woman who has gone through a hard year and nearly met her death but God allowed the situation to turn into a triumphant moment, His daughter returned to Him and she had another chance in life to make things better for her and her family. She started to depend on God again starting by confessing she needed Him.

There are times when we acknowledge who God is but we do not give Him the full access to every part of our life. So often we don't realise or sense the conviction on how precious we are to God that we take matters in our own hands thinking it's for our best interest. What about God's point of view? Who do we look to for guidance? Just my ponderings as I listened to this song.



She was driving last Friday on her way to Cincinnati
On a snow white Christmas Eve
Going home to see her Mama and her Daddy
With the baby in the backseat
Fifty miles to go and she was running low, on faith and gasoline
It'd been a long hard year
She had a lot on her mind and she didn't pay attention
She was going way too fast
And before she knew it she was spinning
On a thin black sheet of glass
She saw both their lives flash before her eyes
She didn't even have time to cry
She was so scared, she threw her hands up in the air

Jesus take the wheel
Take it from my hands
Cause I can't do this on my own
I'm letting go
So give me one more chance
Save me from this road I'm on
Jesus take the wheel

It was still getting colder when she made it to the shoulder
And the car came to a stop
She cried when she saw that baby in the backseat
Sleeping like a rock
And for the first time in a long time
She bowed her head to pray
She said I'm sorry for the way, I've been living my life
I know I've got to change, so from now on tonight

Jesus take the wheel
Take it from my hands
Cause I can't do this on my own
I'm letting go
Just give me one more chance
Save me from this road I'm on
Oh Jesus take the wheel

Ohh I'm letting go
So give me one more chance
Save me from this road I'm on
Just from this road I'm on
Jesus take the wheel
Oh, take it, take it from me
Oh whaaaa ooooh......
