Fresh Hope – Day 49 (Pastor Gillian)

Last year we went on a family holiday. When we arrived at our destination we had to get on a bus to take us to pick up our rental car.


Holidays, flights, delays, the unknown, family, can all cause a little stress and anxiety… I was thrilled to get on that bus and read the sign above the driver; “Your courtesy driver today is JESUS.” Yes that’s right, our driver that day was called ‘JESUS’. I however, read it as a little more…

‘Gillian, just remember that Jesus is driving your life today.’


You’ll only have Jesus driving your life if you’ve asked him to. It was a ‘courtesy’ service. That driver was there as part of the deal, it was included in what we’d signed up for.


I was immediately put at ease after the reminder that no matter what part of the journey I am on, no matter how tired I may feel, no matter how stressful family life is, Jesus has it covered.


When you say ‘yes’ to Jesus, He will willingly and lovingly take the drivers seat of your life and as long as you let Him remain there, you’ll never need to be concerned again.


I got off that bus and said, “Thank You Jesus”


Happy Saturday, with love
