The Lord reveals things and clarifies them for me at the most random times. Long story short, I had to drive about 15 miles home on a donut. If you’ve ever had to ride on a donut you know you that it’s advised that you drive less than 40 MPH.
As I was driving and focusing on keeping my speed below 40 MPH. I began to notice all the cars around me either flash their bright lights at me, tailgate me, or speed around me in the next lane, whilst I continued to drive Mrs. Daisy in the slow lane. I had to keep myself from accelerating when one angry driver flashed their bright lights and honked their horn at me.
My first thoughts were, Lord, why are people so impatient on the road and what is the big rush. I continued to focus on keeping my speed below 40 MPH. As I got closer to home, God said to me, even though you are driving slower than everyone else, you still have a destination that you will reach in due time, just be patient. Don’t get distracted by the other cars around you, stay focused.
The deepness of God amazes me everyday. Sometimes we get so caught up in what is going on around us and we are consumed by distractions. We abandon specific tasks that God has assigned to us, in hopes that we will get people off our backs by fitting in and going with the flow of traffic. Being a single, young adult, Christian woman I face distractions (tailgaters, impatient drivers, bright light flashers) everyday.
Most people won’t admit that they are envious of friends who are married with children or engaged to be married before the age of 40, and those same friends were living with and sexing bae before the wedding.
We get jealous of friends that aren’t “living right” but they have it all, driving in the fast lane. Meanwhile, we are driving Ms. Daisy in the slow lane, living right, no bae, legs closed, blasting Kirk Franklin, and impatiently waiting on God to bless us with the same things our friends have.
God said when you drive, and worry about yourself, focus on what I have tasked and called you to do, you won’t be concerned about how fast the other cars are driving. You will only be focused on not driving over the speed limit on the donut so you can get to your final destination. Don’t take a chance in blowing out the donut and driving over 40 MPH just so you can go with the flow of traffic.
Stay the course that God has prepared for you, and don’t get distracted by horns blowing and flashing lights around you. Your journey with God will sometimes make you stick out in a crowd and you will have to drive Ms. Daisy for longer than you ever expected to.
Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect. Romans 12:2 NLT
