Faith in God includes Faith in his timing!

“We know that all things work together for good for those who love God, who are called according to his purpose.l”

Romans 8:28

It is not very often that we are on the same timing as God. He has the perfect solution to every problem and the ultimate outcome to the perfect life. If we would just get out of his way. All too often we offer up a solution to a problem. Let me handle this, or God you should do this. I can just see him laughing at all our silly solutions. I like to think about it as having this awesome hamburger. Although it might be juicy and cooked just right. God has this prime cut of steak grilled to perfection just ready for us if we would just be patient. Taking a deep breath and sitting in the passenger’s seat, while God takes the steering wheel isn’t easy. Its ok God’s got this. If you take a step back and ask God to guide you, he will. However listening and acting on his timing takes a lot of work and prayer. I know that I am still working on this every day. Some things that I like to do is pray all the time. When I’m unsure or even when things are going great. I pray. Thank God for your struggles. He is helping you grow and learn.

In our society we have so many things that can fill up our everyday lives. A lot of them can be wonderful and we really enjoy doing them every day, some not so much. If at all possible take a few minutes every day to spend with God in his word. I find that if I miss this step for to many days in a row, I start to lose control. In my actions and situations or even with my emotions and attitude. Having that one on one time with God and in his word is so beneficial to everyone. The easiest time to do this is first thing in the morning, or right before bed. If you’re on the road you might have a break that you need to take, or at lunch. Find a quit place that you can focus. Like I said this doesn’t have to be a long time. A couple of verses or a chapter might be all you need to get you moving in the right direction. If you feel like you need a little more, then listen to that and dig a little deeper.

Don’t fight to make everything come out just right. Gods timing is always so much better if we can just listen and be patient. Faith in God includes faith in his timing.


Lord we come to you today with open arms and an open mind. We know that you are the one and only almighty God, the maker of the heavens and the earth and the redeemer. We would like to a few moments and thank you for being there for us, even when we aren’t always there for ourselves. Thank you for being with us as we continue through our current season of life. Thank you for bringing the peace and the chaos to our lives, we know that you are using both to help better us. Lord if we could ask for a couple of things they would be that you help us to listen to you. Jesus always said “those with ears let them hear”, Lord we have ears let us hear you. Lord we also ask that you help us to continue to come to your word and your teaching. Help us to stay on the right track for you. Help us to keep strong in our faith and to never be afraid to let others know what you are doing for us and what you have done for us. Lord we thank you for your patience and preservice. Thank you for your timing.



Lord, today we come to you with HAPPY hearts.  We are so grateful that you give us the opportunity to change the lives of those around us.  We are grateful that you give us the wisdom to change our lives and the lives of those around us.  And you make it so simple. We can do it with a single smile. God today I would ask that you help us to smile more. The next time we see someone down, help us to smile for them. The next time we are down, help us to remember that you gave us the best gift ever. The ability to know you, your son, and the holy spirit. God, we are so grateful for everything you give us.

We ask all these things in your Precious Son's Name


A Little More

 The other day I got a call from one of our clients.

I love talking to our clients so I always smile when I answer the phone.

“Hey Dan, one of my drivers is pulled over and they are saying that our permit doesn’t cover what we weigh. Isn’t that why we hire your team to make sure that these things don’t happen!”

My smile immediately vanished.

I was shocked because my team is amazing. and it’s not like them to miss something like 20,000 lbs on a permit.

So, I asked him, “Who have you been working with, and who was the one who called our team to get the permit?” 

To get to the bottom of the problem I needed the details.

They gave me the details.

My next call was to my team. Then after I got the details I got them started on getting new permits to get the problem fixed. I’m a solutions guy, not an excuses guy.

But I NEED to know the real reason why it happened so that we can fix the issue.

My next call was to the driver so that I could see exactly what happened.

I knew he was going to be upset. He was pulled over and they were going to give him a HUGE ticket. I wouldn’t be happy either.


I made sure not to smile when I made the call.  I had a serious look on my face. As we chatted I learned that he was the person who gave his weight to our team. I asked where he got the weights from and how in the world they were off by over 20K lbs!

That’s when he told me that he might have gotten the wrong scale ticket from the weigh station where he originally weighed.

Immediately my heart leapt with joy, this is NOT our fault!

Now to get the problem resolved and get this driver back on the road was my only goal.  I was not going to assign blame or make anyone feel bad. 

Hey, we all make mistakes. I do it multiple times every single day.

The owner of the company shot me a text. I'm getting permits from the big guys. They won’t make these mistakes that cost me time and $$$$$.

No problem.  Let me know if you need anything. We are here to help.


After they called the “BIG Guys” they called me about 30 minutes later.

Hey, we can’t get an Idaho permit until Monday. It’s Friday night. And we need to drop this load off tomorrow afternoon.

I told him that I would NOT make any promises.

But my team went to work!

Guess what????

We got the permits that the “BIG Guys” couldn’t get.

My team had the Idaho permit in less than 20 minutes. For the right weight this time.

Here’s the point of all this.

When things don’t go right, smile. I have taught my whole team this.

That right there is how we got the permits. They smiled as they worked and it didn’t take any time at all.

Ok, there might be a little knowledge that went into this too. Lol

Next time you need anything DOT, don’t call the “Big Guys” , call the team who can get it done!
