The Speed of Life

The Speed of Life

Freeway, Week 2 – Awareness – Pulling Back the Curtain of Your Life

Devotion 3

Sometimes life seems to pass us by at a break neck speed. And sometimes it feels as if life is creeping along.

How fast is your life right now? (Write down or circle your answer)

Resting – – – Limping – – – Walking – – – Running – – – Racing – – – Supersonic

How long has it been this way? Days? Weeks? Months? Years?

Why did you choose your answer? Jot down a few sentences or phrases that explain why you chose that particular speed.

Do you like the speed of your life? If so, what do you like about it? If not, can you change the speed of your life?

And if you can change the speed of your life, what could you do right now to begin changing it?

Spend some time talking and listening God about your thoughts and reflections to these questions.

(The Message, v.11b-12)
