A number of years ago, I was visiting Mexico with my kids and their spouses. Everyone decided it would be great fun to take these 4 wheel drive vehicles down to watch the sunset on the beach. Now, I love watching the sunset, but the idea of doing it from the back of a crazy all-terrain buggy was not my idea of fun.
I went with them, though, and we sped off into the dunes to the beach. On the way back, I kept getting stuck. I would ride half way up a hill, and then slide all the way down. Again and again, this kept happening. I was becoming more and more afraid.
Then my daughter’s husband rode over to me and whispered, “Mary, you have power you’re not using. Take your hand off the brake.” Sure enough, he was right! I would get half way up the hill and panic, and hit the brakes without realizing it. Once he showed me this, I ascended the hills with ease, any fear erased.
You know what? You have power you’re not using. Take your hand off the brakes and trust your life. Trust in a Higher Power guiding you. Trust that you have all the power you need to make your dreams a reality.
Believing in You,
