The confessions of a speed demon turned pace car.
“Be still and know that I am God.”
I bet you wonder why I am driving so carefully nowadays. Yes, I ‘m THAT Zero Pirelli who use to be a speed demon. I was the one tearing up the track and leaving the competition in the dust.
I have always had the need for speed. It started as a kid and followed me into adulthood. I had to be first. I wasn’t happy unless I saw the competition in my rear view mirror. I was fast. I was the best. I was untouchable.
It was great until one day the fast lifestyle caught up with me. My heart was racing when I was sitting still. There was no reason why I should be feeling this way. It was a hollow thumping that made me wonder why I was moving so fast.
I was racing through life and it was leaving ME in the dust. That thumping sound was the Lord knocking on the door of my heart. I slowed down enough to pull off the road and open that door.
I am so glad that I did because I now know I will finish a more important race: the human race. My life now has a purpose and I am not just racing around in circles. The Lord slowed me down and has helped me find the right pace for my life.
So, now I am helping others find that pace as well. The road of life is a crazy one. We all could use some help to find our way. I hope my story gives you all little direction.
