There He is again,
Concerned while I am striving,
He’s sitting in the backseat,
When He knows He should be driving!

I have forgotten once again,
Until we are arriving,
 He should have been behind the wheel,
And I should just be riding!

Sometimes I fail and I forget,
To have Him in the car at all,
I’m truly absent-minded,
Until I see the crashing-wall !

He’s riding there behind me,
Not fearful in the least,
But He should have the throttle,
This bike’s too much for me.

He should be in the pilot’s seat,
He needs to have that yoke,
My flying skills are funny,
They’re really quite a joke!

My locomotive’s whistle screams,
So loud that I can scarcely hear,
Why’s He back there shovelin’ coal?
 He should be Engineer!

Sometimes I put Him in the back,
Riding with the load,
He should be handling this big rig,
When hauling down this road!

I should always have Him steering,
On winding roads and steep,
Not just when I need a break,
Or when I want to sleep!

I’m in this car I call my life,
He’s walking toward the door,
I think I’ll slide to the passenger side,

For only He can really drive,
Only He can make this tiny engine roar!

    I forget to let God do the driving too, Len. Love the poem.

About The Music Links Below

I don't own, and have no claim on, these music videos. The following are simply links inside my website pointing back to the original locations of the videos. The names of the creators of these videos are cited wherever possible, and only "embedding-enabled" selections are used.

The Basic Christian Library

"Mere Christianity" by C.S. Lewis. This is fundamentally what Christianity is all about.

"The Case for Christ" by Lee Strobel. Another converted atheist presents His compelling case for believing in Jesus.

"Left To Tell" by Imaculee Ilibagiza. This profound work is her own extraordinary story of endurance, discovery of the Holy Spirit, grace, healing, and an astonishingly compelling account of the necessity for forgiveness.

Compelling Christian Fiction Reads

"The Circle" 4-book series by Ted Dekker.
A man is the bridge between two very different worlds. Sound familiar? Can he save both? This T.D. work is brilliant in my book.

"This Present Darkness" and "Piercing the Darkness" by Frank E. Peretti. Tales of spiritual warfare from a unique perspective. Stirred a small controversy, but sold millions. What are we Christians afraid of? Hey, it's fiction!

My Signature Story

"I AM NOT MY OWN" is the piece that inspired the building of this site. It is the story that this site, as well as my life, is centered around. This letter to you is the one i would most like for you to read out of all the ones you will find here, because it describes how profoundly the works of Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit can change one human life.

For Your Reading Enjoyment, This Is Like A Park, Use It, Enjoy It, and Leave Everything Where You Found It.

The content here's not to be used,

But to only be read and perused.

My lawyer's not soft,

And your fortune is mine - you got sued!
