FROM EFFECT TO AFFECT ON THE RACE TRACK: KEEP RUNNING


Ricky Bobby, in the movie/ ficticious comedy TALLADEGA NIGHTS, had a very major & catastrophic crash on the race track. It was so traumatic, that although he made it out perfectly safe from the wreckage, he ran around for nearly an hour afterwards thinking that he was on fire. He even ripped off all his clothes and ended up rolling around on the ground yelling and screaming to the top of his lungs just THINKING that he was burning to death yet, there were no flames.
I can't help but laugh at the movie, but seriously so, there are some events so catastrophic and so traumatic in our lives that, unlike the movie, are NO laughing matter. However, similar to the movie, such events cause very traumatizing and lasting EFFECTS. In the movie, Ricky Bobby's imaginations went running wild to the point where he, being in perfect physical health, believed that he lost his ability to walk and had to be placed in a mental institution.  His mind was so effected by the tragedy he suffered on the race track. BUTTT, glory be to God that

"our weapons of warfare are not carnal, but MIGHTY in God for the pulling down of strongholds and CASTING DOWN IMAGINATIONS and every high thing that exalteth itself against the KNOWLEGE OF GOD, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ(ref. 2 Corinthians 10:4&5, emphasis mine)."

There may be some things in your life that have caused such catastrophic EFFECTS, but I thank God for His LIVING Word which overules it all and gives us the lasting AFFECT which is His own heart, even eternity with Him.

Lord, heal, deliver and set us free from mental trauma. In Your name Jesus, we pray. Amen.

Stay in the race, overcome the hurdles and keep passing the baton. We are following VICTORY and His name is JESUS \oO/

KEEP DIGGING: LET THE RIVERS FLOW

 
Tyler Perry once posted about having to dig wells to find a more cost efficient water source for his home. He ended up digging several wells with several holes peppering his yard, only to no avail. But, then afterwards it hit him. He was going to keep digging in the same spot until he found water. He did!

We are very familiar with how God opens up the windows of heaven and POURS us out a blessing. We keep our eyes on the "sky" looking into the great beyond for it all. From up above we see the sun, moon and stars beaming so brightly. Rain, snow and waterfalls all unleash their glory from this great cloud or that majestic mountain and this is all well and very very good. But, this only encompasses the "external" and at times, in view of so much of what is outwardly, that internal glory is overlooked.

Like the water source Tyler Perry found underneath his own house, there are hidden treasures buried deep within the earth. Within the earth we find precious gems, metals, coal, even root vegetables and so much more. Likewise, within you, there are so many hidden treasures. There is even a more precious light that is brighter than the sun and moon combined and brighter than the stars above.

". . . greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world. (1 John 4:4)." 

Here, you've been searching all over and perhaps were just about ready to give up. But, take a moment, stand still, look again, deeper within and shout "KEEP DIGGING!!!" Let the rivers flow.

"But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us (2 Corinthians 4:7)." 

FRAGRANT TREASURE. . .



Stay in the race, overcome the hurdles and keep passing the baton.

To God be the Glory,
