More Jesus in My Day is a feature you'll find here at my blog every Thursday. Designed to lead you straight to the Savior, each short post offers simple, practical ways to know Him more.
Nothing makes my blood pressure soar like bulging roads filled with rude, crazy drivers. Sadly, I think that pretty much describes many roads in most states.
But nothing combats steam-blowing-out-of-our-ears, traffic-induced stress like Jesus. Here are two simple ways to invite Him into your driving experience:
- Forgive the person who just cut you off. Out loud. You’ll not only experience an immediate release of tension, but you will change the atmosphere in your car and honor Jesus.
- Roll your shoulders and neck, take a deep breath, and whisper His name. Jesus. It’s really that simple. When we call out to and depend on Him, He will show up right there in our car. And road rage will hold no power over us--Jesus will.
And whatever you do—no matter what it is—in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus and in dependence upon His person, giving praise to God the Father through Him. (Colossians 3:17)
