Day 26: Collisions - Staying The Course When Your Life Crashes

Staying The Course When Your Life Crashes - Based on One Month to Live by Kerry and Chris Shook

Life Lesson (from journal): "Our collisions with God's values and God's will can be remedied when we trust God, delight in God, and commit ourselves to Him."

Kerry and Chris Shook says: We get to choose which path we take in life. We can travel in God's direction, or we can chart our own course and try to make it on our own. We can drive the care empowered by His will or the one fueled by our will. When I choose to drive my own care and make all my decisions without consulting Him, it's like heading the wrong way down a one-way street. It ends in a collision with God, which isn't pretty. Only when we allow Him to direct us can we leave a lasting impact."Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight." (Proverbs 3:5-6)

What happens when we make God our heart's greatest delight? (Readings: Deuteronomy 4:29-31; Psalms 42-43; Philippians 1:18-26; Philippians 3:1-14
"It is in recognizing the actual presence of God that we find prayer no longer a chore, but a supreme delight." -Gordon Lindsay
God says, "You have to commit to following My will, and then I'll show you what it is."

Face Time
     Ouch God! I'm tired of spending time in a spiritual ICU after "encountering" Your unmovable will. You'd think I'd learn.
     Well, actually, I think I am learning. I don't want to try this alone anymore. Help me trust You, delight in You, commit myself and my life to You, so I'll recognize You more consistently as my ever-present Companion.
