Jesus Take the Wheel...by Carrie Underwood

ok, this one has been on my phone for years, so if you have ever called me you listen to it while waiting for me to pick up.... Its the chorus that I love.
JESUS TAKE THE WHEEL, I AM LETTING GO, CAUSE I CAN'T DO THIS ON MY OWN.....
This is a HUGE statement if you stop and think, mule it over. For me anyways.
So often I want to rely on ME. I CAN DO IT. Its so easy to try and put God up on a shelf, or as I like to put it, in a "GOD BOX" for later use.
I need to daily ask him to take the wheel because I cannot do it on my own. We cannot do even the mundane simple things that we think we can on our own, we need him daily, in EVERY ASPECT.... SO this CHORUS is one of my mantras I guess you could say.
Something I like to repeat over and over to myself....
DAILY, more often really!!!!

(but I did post the whole 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
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
To 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 handsCause I can't do this on my own

I'm letting go
So give me one more chance
To save me from this road I'm on

Oh Jesus, take the wheel
Oh, I'm letting go


So give me one more chance
Save me from this road I'm on
From this road I'm on
Jesus, take the wheel
Oh, take it, take it from me

Oh, why, ooh
