Are You driving or Being Driven?

I have always had a dread of becoming a passenger in life. -Margareth II, Queen of Denmark

These words of this great woman really jolted me, as I look around and see so many of us who haven’t achieved much in life, who are not following their dreams, yet we are so comfortable becoming passengers in life’s buses going nowhere.

Many of us have become what Zig Ziglar called wondering generalities. We are just wondering about from one job the other, from one marriage to another, from one relationship to another, from one course of study to another, without knowing what we want to do with our lives.

Some of you are in marriages and relationships because you were told that’s the right choice to make, for the sake of the family, or to look responsible in the society and so on. Yet you are miserable in that relationship but you have to put up the appearance and stay in it to please the society. Some of you are in jobs that make you miserable but you staying there because you because of the temporal security it offers, or because you are afraid of what people will think, you are like the drug junkie who knows the pills are killing him but won’t let go of the habit.

God didn’t create you to do things because others have thought those things are normal. In fact His word says, “Do not be conformed to the patterns of this world.”…”Come ye out from among them.” Have the courage to do or be different from others. It doesn’t matter if all the people around you think you are crazy, in fact the people who cause change in the world have been crazy people.

The be comfortable being like the rest..its only sheep, cattle, wolves that move in packs and behave like each other. We are humans, designed in the image of God to take control, and live our greatest lives! Don’t give in to the pressure of others around you. Dare to believe in yourself. Dare to think differently. Dare to be you!

Live your greatest life!
