Life is a Highway (apologies to Rascal Flatts for borrowing this title.)
As I was driving to and from Alabama recently, I noted that some people were never content where they were at on the highway.
The people in the far right-hand lane didn't look happy.
The people in the left lane wanted to drive fast.
Then there was the middle lane. Honestly, I don't think they knew why they were there.
I don't know why, but people from Alabama think that they can get their full sized cars into the 3 feet between you and the car in front of you. I also don't understand why people from Ohio don't get the concept of "slower traffic keeps to the right". Of course, Florida drives haven't a clue what a turn signal is.
So there we were, all of us doing our best imitation of NASCAR. Changing lanes and getting to our destinations as fast as possible.
Isa 35:8 And a highway will be there; it will be called the Way of Holiness; it will be for those who walk on that Way. The unclean will not journey on it; wicked fools will not go about on it.
At one point I was caught up in all of this, driving like everyone else, then it dawned on me. I don't have to be this way.
#1 - I had a GPS that for the most part would get me where I wanted to go.
#2 - I had plenty of time to make the trip. I wasn't on a deadline.
#3 - I had a guaranteed hotel reservation. My destination was sure.
How are you going to live your life today?
#1 - You have a GPS, it's called the Word of God, the Bible. It's more reliable than the GPS on my wife's phone, believe me.
#2 - You have today. Tomorrow is its own problem. You've got plenty of time to make this trip.
#3 - If you already have accepted Christ as your Savior, then you know where you are going. Enjoy the trip there. God has so much to show you!
PRAY: Dear Jesus, let me enjoy today and be content with where you have me at right now. AMEN
