The Daily Commute of Champions
How to Turn Your Daily Commute into the Most Important Time of Your Day
Your world is only as big as the trails that you travel.
There are a lot of men who have limited their world simply because they’re not willing to travel new trails. Their path is the same path they’ve always beaten. It’s easy to get in a rut and stay there. It’s difficult to cut a new swath. The greatest temptation in a man’s life is comfort.
I was working in a coal mine in Oklahoma when I had to make the decision to leave everything and go to college. It was hard. I had to quit my job, sell my possessions, pack my suitcase and move to another state. It wasn’t easy but it was necessary. As I drove away from everything that I was comfortable with, I prayed to God.
It was during that drive that I began to discover that God relates to men in the daily commute.
The steps of a man are established by the LORD, when he delights in his way; though he fall, he shall not be cast headlong, for the LORD upholds his hand. – Psalm 37:23-24 (ESV)
I realized that my steps had directional intent—an overwhelming realization that God had a destination in mind for me. Some call it providence, while others call it destiny. This revelation encouraged me that God would be very involved in my decisions. Along with this new understanding came the personal responsibility to seek Him for guidance. This lesson has been extremely valuable for me and has given me the self-assurance that I am in step with Him.
