60 SECOND LAINE-FAST TRAK

Times flying.
Think about that.
Times flying?
I guess racing ahead.
Of course, we're loosing time.
Time for what?
Right now I just read "The mountains melt like wax before the Lord, before the Lord of all the earth."

So many word pictures here.
Wax from a candle stick melts and runs down the stick.
I picture a mountain literally standing tall falling down like a mudslide and then it no longer exists.
God what does all this mean?

Then it hits me. I am not the same when I visit with God. When I acknowledge his presence.
Again today I make my thankful list from yesterday. I'm not the same. I can't be the same. When I go before Him I am changed. I melt...melt like the snow...like wax in a candle...like a mountain coming down...it's better than life. I reflect on this today. Better than life...mmm.
I think so.
Better keep going...times racing. Time determines me. Am I on some sort of fast trak? Really? God owns time...therefore God is time...He is love...I just need to acknowledge it...then He makes it all okay...He controls things...mmm...I like that...Amen.

60 SECOND LAINE- MASTER

i picked up my journal
imprinted on the cover...

GOD IS LOVE...1 John 4:8
KEEP YOURSELVES IN THE LOVE OF GOD LOOKING FOR LIFE EVERLASTING...Jude 1:21
FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD, THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON THAT WHOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHOULD NOT PERISH BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE...
John 3:16

Pray in the power of the Holy Spirit, that you my friend will connect with the Lord in this truth, so that your mind will be at peace. Be grateful in all things.

I just made a list of all the things i have to be thankful for just yesterday.
Can you make a list and focus on it?
God exists. God cares. God loves you.

Stay focused today on this catch phrase God is real (you would not have a thankful list if he was not real).
most importantly...

GOD IS THE MASTER OF LOVE.

60 SECOND LAINE-Get Serious

Quietyly yet intentionally go to God.

You're feeling lost...
you're feeling lonely...
you're looking to feel something positive...

I am reminded today to stop looking for a feeling and look for the truth.
So let God work His will in you.

For me the catch phrase is stop trying to figure it all out!
It's making you anxious!

Say a yes to God and He'll be there in no time.

Get serious. Stop playing around.

Get down on your knees before the Master; it's the only way you'll get on your feet.

Grow up.

#findinginwardtruth
Truth sets us free.
Pray this:  God help me to find inner truth. Amen.
Words to live by.

We can't keep looking at the world and God. It's only God!

60 SECOND LAINE-MOTIVATION

Wait "What did you just say?" She repeats "You guys are such a good team to work with. I like coming over to your section it is peaceful." Tears welled up in my eyes and my heart skipped a beat of joy.

I must explain. It was a special moment because she just acknowledged everything I had been praying for...peace, favor and team work. I could give you the long version of how this occurred over months of patience, taking the high road, putting others first, minding my own business and being present at work, all with the idea of doing the hard for Jesus' namesake. I battled through this work constantly remembering the old sayings. F.R.O.G. (fully relying on God) and W.W.J.D. (what would Jesus do). Corny but true! I'm joining in the work He does, the good work he has gotten ready for us to do, work we had better be doing.

The point:

When you do anything...homework, housework, cooking, cleaning, job...what is your motivation?

Are you living your life story to be able to brag...I've done this...I did it it all!

Or are you living a story that will leave a legacy laced with God's handprint?

This is a challenge to the status quo. If we are remiss of Jesus and go down a path of Christian amnesia it could block motivation and silence the desire for meaning of life.
