"Out Of Control"

I must share the dream that I had right before I woke up this morning with you

I was in my vehicle on my way to pick up my little girl to go to church.  It was a gray, dreary, cloudy, misty rainy day.  I was running late so I was going a little faster than I should have been.  I decided to slow down so I would not have a wreck.  My thoughts were-- (if I am late), it is not the end of the world.  At that precise moment, I lost control of my vehicle.  It was fish-tailing from one side of the road to the other.  Back and forth and back and forth I was going all over the road.  I remember thinking then-- maybe it is the "end of the world" (this life) for me.  I was trying to get it back under control when I saw a huge water puddle quickly approaching.  I calmly said, "Jesus".  My vehicle immediately straightened up.  It stopped fish-tailing.  It was back in its own lane as if nothing had happened.  I proceeded on to pick up my little girl. 

When I woke up, as soon as my feet hit the floor, the words of a song started playing in my head-- "Because He lives, I can face tomorrow.  Because He lives, all fear is gone.  Because I know, He holds the future.  And life is worth the living just because He lives".
I felt I must share this dream because there is a word in it for someone specifically.  When your life feels like it is out of control, when you feel like your world has come to an end, when you feel like you are being destroyed, when you feel like you are not going to make it, again, when your life is spinning out of control--- call on Jesus.  He will put it back in control.  He will put it back on track.  He will straighten it up. 

In my dream I wasn't afraid even though the vehicle was all over the road and out of control.  I knew I belonged to Jesus.  My life is in His hands.  If I died I would be with Him.  But when I said His name, my situation came back in order and what was out of control got back under control. 

Your life may be spinning out of control, you may be facing chaos and confusion, but like the song says, "Because Jesus lives, you can face it, you don't have to fear.  Because He lives, He can put all things back in their proper place and bring all things under control. 

Have a great day.  Because Jesus lives, whatever is spinning out of control in your life can be brought back into control.
