Happy Monday. “Choose your rut carefully for you will be in it for a long time.” –Sign on a remote road in Alaska
Have you ever said, “I’m in a rut”? We do have a tendency to choose bad habits at times and seem “stuck.”
Particularly, I think many are holding on to the “what if’s,” carrying baggage of hurts, failures, defeats of the past.
It’s hard to get to tomorrow if you are stuck in yesterday.
You’ve had failure? Or someone has failed you? You are identified with the human race. Congratulations!
I’m so glad God used those in the word who failed! He told us of their lives—warts and all.
Though God doesn’t condone sin, He remembers that we are dust (Psalms 103:14). Dust isn’t stable, nor are we.
To move to the future in a better way likely means forgiving—yourself and anyone else to whom you might be bound. To forgive is to set a prisoner free—that prisoner is you.
You have 86,400 seconds today and every day to choose a different rut. What will the chapter written June 17, 2013 say of your choice? I hope you are closing the last chapter.
“Lord, lift me up and let me stand
By faith, on Heaven’s table land.
A higher plane than I Have found
Lord, lead me on to higher ground.”
