I just returned home from a meeting with a few youth pastors. I drove 7 hours for about 5 hours of meetings. Why? I was asking the same thing myself. About 4 of the 7 hours was driving in the rain. As I drove back at night, in the rain it became very obvious to me that I was in for a bit of an interesting drive. The rain was really coming down. When passing semi trucks visibility was virtually nothing except for a faint hint of the white stripe on the side of the road. There was never a time where I could loose my focus. It was crucial that I stayed totally focused on the road. As I drove a verse came to mind...
Philippians 3:15-16, So let's keep focused on that goal, those of us who want everything God has for us. If any of you have something else in mind, something less than total commitment, God will clear your blurred vision? You'll see it yet! Now that we're on the right track, let's stay on it.
I dont doubt God's call... Now it's focus.
