I walk down a street and there’s a deep hole in the sidewalk. I fall in. It takes forever to get out. It’s my fault.
I walk down the same street. I fall in the hole again. It still takes a long time to get out. It’s not my fault.
I walk down the same street. I fall in the hole again. It’s becoming a habit. It is my fault. I get out immediately.
I walk down the same street and see the deep hole in the sidewalk. I walk around it.
I walk down a different street.
I will add this, when I was walking without God in my life, I was dying…and dying for no reason. When I met Jesus, He took me off that street I was going down (going down literally) and put me on a higher road with plenty of purpose and a new direction. Now I’m living, and living life more abundantly. He, died to give it to me. Jesus gave me real meaning, new goals and a drive to get there. And definitely saved my life; healing me inside and out! That’s my short testimony!
In our lives there are many holes along the journey….and there are many streets. I know there are explorers out there, but in my experience, there are some streets we should just not go near. There is a school of hard knock, but we don’t have to show up for class. There is a better way. Amen?
Read this a couple of times….let just these little sentences sink in….and ponder the day, what changes you could make, what new path could you take instead of the one your on. I know you have faith, but you have to act on it. “…ofthestory“
