Sitting in traffic is frustrating…mind-numbing…make-you-reconsider-your-life-decisioning. In those moments when you are crawling along at under 5 mph…going 15 seems amazing, let alone going 55. But that is all context related. If the expectation is to be stopped, going 30 is awesome. But when the speed-limit is 75, going 55 feels as irritating as going 5.
In life like driving, our “speed-expectations” significantly influence our “contentment-meter”. “Shouldn’t I be further in my career by now?” “Why aren’t I married yet?” “When am I going to have children?” But in those moments of impatience, it is truly our expectations that should change. It’s not so much, “Why haven’t I achieved my life-goal?”, but rather, “God what would you like me to do today?”
Dear Father, Please adjust my life-meter today so that I am able to achieve everything You have prepared for me to do.
Come with me as we grow in fellowship with each other and our Savior to whom belongs the Amazing Escape from sin and death and the Amazing Journey into glorious life.
