I Followed Jesus...

... While eating chicken!! True story!!

A few weeks ago, before heading home at the end of my day, I grabbed dinner from Chick-fil-A. It was my usual #3 chicken nugget meal. To save time, I eat as I travel. The waffle fries are the first to be eaten as they are best hot and fresh, and they are the easiest to grab out of the bag. Then it was time for the chicken and of course dipping sauce. About this time, I was heading into the construction zone on I25, so I made the decision to stay in the right lane (it's slower) and settled in behind a semi-trailer. I was content driving a slower speed and just enjoyed my chicken. As I was finishing up the nuggets, I raised my focus from the lower half of the truck (which is what I was focusing on to keep a safe distance/constant speed) and read the following near the top of the truck:

JESUS CHRIST IS LORD

and

JESUS I AM THE WAY THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE. (John 14:6)

Talk about an AH HA moment!!! What a very visible reminder that if we are following Jesus, we are taken care of. Jesus leads us, guides us and protects us.

I tried to get a picture but moving objects at dusk didn't work out so well ... But it is in my library of memories and I can say I followed Jesus while eating chicken. That makes me smile!!

When the time was right, I passed the semi giving gratitude for the awesome reminder and the opportunity to just be content and in the moment ... God now had my back. He is EVERYWHERE!!

Dear God, thank you for giving me a super cool reminder that you are ALWAYS present in my life. May you continue to show up and show off not only in my life but in the lives of those around me. Thank you for being the way, the truth and the life. Amen.
