I drive for Uber or LYFT twice a week. It is a perfect fit for my lyfe, as I build Hidden Potential Coaching and care for my parents. I get to love people, pray WITH them, pray FOR them and make extra cash! Its super tiring, driving in traffic for 8- 9 hours for me, but it seems God has something for me to learn and at the same time give. Its been an interesting “ride”.
While driving, I THINK: “I am going to head straight to this area so I can make a bunch more money.” Then, ping, I get called to a different area. In fact, it is interesting how some days, I can go from one end of town to the other and not hit the area I thought would be best. I have a goal when I work to make a certain amount and end by a certain time. Each day, the goal is met. Yet, NOT the way I thought it should be met. These scriptures really popped out to me one day.
Proverbs 16:1 ~ WE can make our own plans, but the Lord gives the right answer.
LYFING this way has been interesting. I think this last year, I fought it Uber hard. Trying my darnedest to make things happen the way I thought for SURE God was asking me. My LYFE became disappointment after disappointment because I wasn’t taking to heart what those scriptures were saying. When I finally “got it” I began committing my actions to the Lord, and let HIM determine my steps. This new way of lyfing for me has brought contentedness, peace and confidence.
Even thought I may not know WHERE I am going next, or WHEN I will be going anywhere. I DO know GOD has placed desires inside of me and I will continue to step in the directions I sense I am to go, as I allow HIM to “light the way”. Its an UBER LYFE when I LYFE for Jesus!
