While I was listening to my music today, I stumbled across a Francesca Battistelli song that I had forgotten about. Besides the catchy summertime feel, I am drawn to the song’s lyrics. Fitting well with Proverbs 3:5-6, “Keeping Me Guessing” reminds us of Who is guiding our steps. The chorus confidently states:
I don’t know how the story ends,
But I’ll be alright ‘cause You wrote it
I don’t know where the highway bends but I’m doing just fine
‘Cause You’re in control even when I don’t know where my life’s gonna go
You’re keeping me guessing.
Here’s the thing-- I know a lot of people struggle with giving up control. Trust me, I get it. I am not a fan of situations in which I have no control (i.e. plane rides), but there is something incredibly comforting in knowing I am placing my trust in God-- who has ruled over creation since the beginning of time. I am relieved when I realize that although I have no clue where my life will be in 5 or 10 years, my Father wrote the story of my life and I know I will be fine. Check out this video of the song and, as you listen to it, think of Proverbs 3:5-6:
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek His will in all you do, and He will show you which path to take.”
