In a hurry? Extra passengers in the car? Head for the HOV (High Occupancy Vehicle) lane. This lane is especially helpful when traffic is heavy or slowed on the main highway. Without a string of cars in front of you, you easily move down the road to your destination.
In some places, the HOV lane has become a toll lane. While it saves you time, there may be a price. That’s life in the fast lane.
Which brings us to the point of this discussion. When your spiritual life is slowed down, and obstacles seem to block your progress, it’s time to move to the Faith Lane. You won’t find it as crowded, for fewer people have chosen this lane. There is a price: prayer, commitment, trust in God. And there are still obstacles. Mountains, in fact. But they move with merely a word.
The beauty of the Faith Lane is that you can take others with you. Your journey is graced with miracles, life-changes and spiritual fellowship. Your faith will touch the lives of others and inspire their faith.
Tired of plodding along in your Christian life without any real progress? Held back by discouragement and disappointment? Try life in the Faith Lane — with Jesus in the driver’s seat.
I will start living in the Faith Lane by putting my trust totally in Jesus as my Savior and guide in every decision.
