Jesus Leads

By Rasu Rosario

“Jesus leads, the devil drives” is something I have heard many times. About 18 months ago, I asked the Lord for help as I felt that I had always been very driven plus I was driving my loved ones especially in a controlling fashion. Jesus helped me understand what He was saying in Matthew 11:30: “For my yoke is easy and my burden is light”. I “ate” this verse and with God’s help started to practice what it meant to give my challenges to Jesus (i.e. hitting the forward button and sending it to Him for direction). I have noticed less fear in me of the unknown or when challenges come my way. Anxiety has gone down. I don’t hurt as easy. I am less controlling of my loved ones and trusting plus believing that He has the perfect plan for my kids, my loving husband and my elderly mother. I have come to understand that God can be everything to me. Even when I can play golf all by myself when no one is able to join me, Jesus was my golf partner. He is even better than Tiger Woods! I am also slowly and surely enabling my kids less. I look forward to not enabling them at all and instead praying for them and being there for them when they come for advice or ask for my opinion or help. I have noticed my kids being more happier and growing slowly and surely more independent. Best of all, I am more relaxed, enjoying life and being more peaceful. I enjoy doing my everyday work more with Jesus leading. I know that challenges will come my way and when they do I ask God to help me be cool, calm and controlled like a well running nuclear power plant unit.  Thank you to you my Bridge family for your love and support over the years and most of all for gently walking with me.
