Every week day most of us
drive back and forth to work.
Sometimes we are hampered by
some others selfish quirk.
They’ll pull right out in front of you
then hit their brakes to slow…
instead of waiting till you’ve passed
they feel it’s right to go.
The cell phone is another tool
the devil uses really well.
When that car in front is lagging
you can usually tell.
You can see one hand held tightly
pressed against their ear.
Oblivious to all around them
what they’re thinking isn’t clear.
Hang up and drive!! You’d like to tell them;
maybe they’ll read lips.
You could think of more to say,
concisely worded quips.
Then there is the tourist
trying to read a map and drive.
You should pray that they get there
in one piece and alive.
Don’t you recognize him?
He’s tempting you with sin.
He’ll try every opening
until you let him in.
Those angry thoughts you’re thinking
on your way to your house,
May result in disagreements
with your own dear spouse.
Don’t let his urgings cause you
to mutter and complain.
He’ll fill your mind with angry thoughts,
but “you” must then refrain.
We must learn to realize
his promptings are all wrong.
If we just tell him to, get lost…
he won’t be there for long.
He’ll try to aggravate you
with other drivers that are rude.
They’ll cut you off, and wave “one” finger…
to crush your attitude.
You must learn to laugh it off.
It’s really best for you.
They’re either saying you’re number one,
or indicating their “IQ”.
All in all it’s quite unnerving
and can lead to excess stress.
Just make your mind up to relax
and dive into that mess.
You’ll get there and feel much better
when you do arrive.
You just have to settle down…
relax and pray… then drive.

“Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:
For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.”
