MOTIVATIONAL MOMENT October 20, 2019
Have you noticed that Nashville and surrounding counties have become a rat race? New buildings…New people…New roads…Everyone is in a hurry to get the next deal, the next new business concept, the next set of clients, …the list is endless. The road rage? Wow I had to catch myself! I FOLLOWED someone that not only flipped a waving finger, yelled intense profanity but cut me off the road at the same time!! I found myself making an almost U-turn and ceasing from going in my original direction, instead FOLLOWED them all the way downtown. Yes, they noticed me, and I could feel the heat rising of my satisfaction of invoking fear as they kept looking back and tried to lose me. As I was saying some not so sweet words…I kept hearing His still small voice ask, “What in the world are you doing?” and “What are you going to do when you catch up with them?” Well, I didn’t know. LOL, so I turned around to go to my original destination. NOT because I heard the Holy Spirit, at first, but the conviction of FOOLISHNESS kicked in when I saw I was out of gas. LOLOL
Lord help us!!!
(Ephesians 4:26-7) “Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.”
Grieve the Holy Spirit. Do you know how much we grieve the Holy Spirit on a daily bases, in the midst of the rush to get ahead or get back at the next person? Wow! Remember this week to ssslloow down and LISTEN to HIS voice and NOT the rise of the flesh. It’s not worth it. Life is worth so much more with Him as your guide…before you run out of gas!!
