Take the Wheel

Carrie Underwood Jesus take the Wheel This is my first year watching American Idol, I have enjoyed it tremendously. My children tell me that this year there is a lot of talent. I agree, although I think we already have our favorites picked out.

The last episode of American Idol had an extra treat, an appearance from the winner of last year. I am not a huge fan of the country sound, but as most know, I can and do listen to almost anything. I just love all music.
What struck me the most was her choice of songs; it was a very deep Christian message entitled, "Jesus Take the Wheel"

I felt like I could identify with the lyrics. I suppose we call could. The song goes on how it was a hard year for this lady, and as she was driving her car, she reflects on how difficult it has been. How she needed to change.

How often we try to be in control without God, without praying, with out letting His Will being first in our lives?

Anyway, it was a tremendous song I had never heard before, with an amazing message on Prime Time Television.


Here are the Lyrics:

Jesus, Take The Wheel

She was driving last Friday on her way to Cincinnati
On a snow white Christmas Eve
Going home to see her Mama and her Daddy with the baby in the backseat
Fifty miles to go and she was running low on faith and gasoline
It been a long hard year
She had a lot on her mind and she didn’t pay attention
She was going way to fast
Before she knew it she was spinning on a thin black sheet of glass
She saw both their lives flash before her eyes
She didn’t even have time to cry
She was sooo scared
She threw her hands up in the air

Jesus take the wheel
Take it from my hands
Cause I can’t do this all on my own
I’m letting go
So give me one more chance
To save me from this road I’m on
Jesus take the wheel

It was still getting colder when she made it to the shoulder
And the car came to a stop
She cried when she saw that baby in the backseat sleeping like a rock
And for the first time in a long time
She bowed her head to pray
She said I’m sorry for the way
I’ve been living my life
I know I’ve got to change
So from now on tonight

Jesus take the wheel
Take it from my hands
Cause I can’t do this all my own
I’m letting go
So give me one more chance
To save me from this road I’m on

Oh, Jesus take the wheel
Oh, I’m letting go
So give me one more chance
Save me from this road I’m on
From this road I’m on
Jesus take the wheel
Oh, take it, take it from me
