Life in the fast lane --Bobbie Houston (Hillsong Women)
Yesterday at Hillsong women Bobbie Houston started a new series of teaching titled "Life in the fast lane".
The scripture she used was Philippians 3:10-4:1, which is about pressing on toward the goal. There's a destiny, there's a journey and there's a race. Our race is not just about us, it affects many others as well.
1. Just want to check that you are heading somewhere, you are at the right fast lane that's going to the right place, not in a dead end street.
2. Life in the fast lane has a very cool definition, it suggests that the fast lane life and lifestyle is busy and exciting, although sometimes it can be stressful.
3. It suggests that a slow lane might exist. People in the slow lane are hesitant, unwilling and behind time.
4. Life in the last lane is not a competition, but it will fast track you to blessings and rewards. Comparison is competitive, there're others in the promised land ahead of you, but there's plenty of room there.
5. Life in the fast lane is fueled by wisdom.
Wisdom is skill of doing life. When the skills are not enough, then you need to slow down, otherwise you'll bump into somebody.
She intended to give 12 points, but somehow she got sidetracked by some of her funny stories that happened during her race in the fast lane, and she only got through 5 points.
She went shopping one day, and halfway through her shopping she looked at her shopping trolley and suddenly realised that her baby wasn't with her:she forgot her in the car, and the car doors were not even locked.
Once she left her two year old son Joel Houston with a babysitter, the babysitter put him in the car and drove out, and through the back mirror she found that the 2 year old baby was chasing after the car: somehow she had swung the baby off the car in her fast lane, but Joel was such a strong baby boy, he managed to pull himself up and chased after the running car.
Another time she was doing a women's conference, and she was allocated a babysitter to look after her 5 year old Laura. She left her some food at home and rushed to the conference, thinking she has already organised a babysitter. Then halfway through the conference the babysitter signaled to her across the auditorium,"where is Laura?" and she freaked out.
Well, she kept on telling her funny stories and forgot about her points. And then time's up. But nobody seemed to mind, neither did she. She called herself a mother from hell, but nevertheless, the kids all survived and they're all doing quite ok.
