God's Deadlines

Jesus tells us, “My ways are not your ways.” My ways gave me a lot of trouble in the past. Thank God for His ways. Often times, His ways are hidden and it takes a lifetime to uncover His plans for you.

Not only is there a plan for you, there is also a deadline. You can't escape this deadline, the day your heart beats for the last time. You do have a choice. You can continue to do things your way or you can allow God to be in charge of your life. The closer you get to your deadline, the more you will recognize the futility in doing things your way.

If you feel your life is a mess, change it up. Try doing things God's way. Begin with a prayer. Ask him, “Lord, what are your plans for me?”

Once God shows you His plans, ask Him for the tools to get the job done. You have a deadline. With The Holy Spirit to assist you, you will make deadline. Why? Because God's ways and God's timing are perfect. He never misses His deadlines. He won't force you to do it His way, however, He is the One who wrote the owner's manual.  Your body, mind and spirit will flourish once you understand the meaning of your existence.  Refer to the owner's guide for instructions.
