We all work hard to be self sufficient. We want to be our own man or woman, not dependent on anyone or anything.

To try and navigate your way on your own is not only self centered, it's dangerous.
"Know that the Lord, He is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture." Psalm 100:3

I promise you, if we will allow the Lord to do the driving we are going to enjoy the journey so much more! Just ask Paul...
And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 2 Corinthians 12:9
