Supersized and drive through meals ... delivered freaky fast your way that are finger lickin' good. These are a few fast food 'conveniences' for our fast paced lives in the fast lane. I am guilty of participating in both ordering my share of supersized McArtery Clogger Value Meals, and using the drive through for lunch, lattes, and my banking needs. Life is busy and there is a time and a place for fast food, and fast service but there is a time and a place to SLOW DOWN.
Now as I segue to my faith journey.. I find awkward parallels to our fast food society.
1. I want the blessings on my life supersized now please,
2. I sometimes pray like I am using a drive thru window. I don't even slow down to say hello to God but place my order/prayer list with the angel stationed at my drive thru prayer window. And..
3. my patience for His answers rivals my belief that microwave popcorn still takes waaay too long.
Moral of this blurb is.. God does listen to and answer my freaky fast food faith moments (sometimes that is all I have), BUT how much better my perspective is when I slow down and savor quiet times with my Heavenly Father. Prayers that are not distracted and hurried, and devotions that are not fit in just before I go to bed and can hardly keep my eyes open. To slow down is good for my soul, and I am 'gently' convicted/impressed that I need this now.
There will be those times where freaky fast faith is all we have time for, but let's purposefully slow down and make time with God that is more than a microwaved/reheated moment of spiritual nourishment. Maybe a home cooked God's Family Meal... with desert.
Hmm.. I am getting hungry.
May God bless and use each of you for His glory in SUPERSIZED ways

Wow. I sped through my prayer list last night. Thank you for reminding me that it's not a check list, it is intimate time spent with our loving Father.

If we believe in Jesus, we should also think that nothing is impossible. I actually hate the idea that there are still people who are not convince on how God can change everything just to make our lives even more comfortable. he wants the best for us, it's just that we cannot see the value of it because we might ben asking for more. I just hope that people would learn to trust God even more because that is the right thing to do.

This pandemic has really changed my way of thinking to my faith. It was unbalanced up until now and I agree with that. I was really in doubt in my faith but this situation has helped me on which path to take. Sometimes, because we know a lot, we tend to forget to pray and talk to God. It was quite saddening, but I know we have our reasons. I just hope that all people who are lost in faith will find their way back to God.
