It's not about making a point…let's make a difference

Living Forward, Understanding Backward

Walking with the Lord always requires faith. Often faith and your relationship with Him is all you have to hold on to. As we circle back to March of 2001 to see where we have been the last 16 years, the journey has been nothing short of amazing.

From unrepentant sinner to a Christ lead business owner, the years since my return to the Father’s house have been intense. The journey has seen us start and operate a ministry to racers. We had no clue how to do it just that the Lord would lead and provide each step of the way…and He has. We would move from ministering at the track fulltime to ministering in the market place. First through creating and hosting numerous website with a variety of ministries and businesses. Then 11 years ago we started webcasting drag racing at His leading.

The streaming business was slow at first and has seen many ups and downs. Yet each time we thought we could not go another step, He would open a door to another opportunity providing ways for us to grown our capabilities and business. Our job has always been to just… keep… walking.

Do you find yourself thinking you can not take another step on the Lord’s path for your life? If so, take time to reflect on where you are, where you have been and where He is taking you. If you’re like me, you will see a path filled with His grace, mercy, direction and opportunity. It’s time to stop thinking about going back to Egypt and once again fix your eyes on the promised land.


Living Forward, Understanding Backward
by Os Hillman

“The one who calls you is faithful and He will do it.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:24

When I was in my 20’s, I participated in a wilderness-training course in a desert and mountain area. For our “final exam,” we were blindfolded, placed in the back of a pickup truck, and taken to a remote area. We were dropped off and told to meet back at the camp in three days. We did not know where we were. We had to determine our location with our compasses. It was a frightening experience for four young people who had learned to navigate through the use of a compass only a few days earlier. With our food and water on our backs, we began our trek. It had just snowed that morning, so the way was difficult. We walked through valleys, canyons, snow-covered hills, and forests. In all, we walked more than 60 miles in three days. There were times when we did not think we could go another foot. Exhaustion and frostbitten feet were taking their toll. However, we finally made it to our base camp successfully, and to our surprise, we were the first ones among the other patrols to make it back.

At the conclusion of our journey, we were able to stand on top of a ridge, look behind us and see the beautiful terrain that we had just scaled. The pain of what we had just endured seemed to subside. We could not believe we had actually walked through those valleys and snowcapped hills. There was a sense of accomplishment.

Life is very much like this. It is often lived forward, but understood backward. It is not until we are down the road a bit that we can appreciate the terrain God has allowed us to scale and the spiritual deposits He has made in our life as a result. When you begin to realize some of this, you sit back and breathe a sigh of relief because you know that God was in control all along. It didn’t seem like it at the time, but He was.

Are you in the midst of a difficult journey that seems almost impossible to continue? Be assured that God is providing grace even now to equip you for that journey. There will be a time when you can say, “Wow, look at what God has done because of what I gained through that valley.” Trust Him with the outcome of where you find yourself today.
