Life is a journey! We are each traveling on different highways, streets or back roads. Wherever our journey takes us we must all stay in our lane. There will be stop signs and red lights along the way. There will be rain, snow and ice. There will be tornadoes, hurricanes and floods. Some roads will have potholes. However, we are not to stay stuck in one place. The lanes are not for parking. We got to keep it moving. Yes, you may run out of gas or have a flat. Refuel, change your tire and keep it moving.
Life is not a race! It does not matter who gets where first or who you pass along the way. What counts is that as you travel that you take God with you, and you share with your sisters and brothers the love of Christ.
Life is not about the material things you gather along the journey! Life is about the lessons learned and the memories. Some of us miss the lessons but gather and hold on to so much stuff that our lives are running over. The load has become so heavy that it is unbearable. Some of the load we are carrying is not our stuff. We picked up this or that when we jumped in someone else’s lane, relationship, bed or business.( Did she? Yes she did!) Some people and things we did not intend to take with us but they attached themselves to us…..you do know demons transfer? Stay in your lane!
God planned our life’s journey! God prepared a specific travel route just for each of us. Unfortunately, God tells us to go right and we go left or He said go around the city but we cut through cause we want to see what is going on or we want to run by his or her house.( Just say ouch if you can’t say Amen!) God said stay in the slow lane, but no, we just had to go faster so we move over to the fast lane. Uh oh, then we have an accident now we want God to fix it. We should have just followed the specified travel route and……..stayed in our lane!
Life is truly a journey my friends! Take God with you, follow the specified route, keep your eyes on the road, stay in your lane and keep it moving!
