As I’ve written devotionals and blogs, I’ve learned to disregard irony. There are times in my life when I hear God speak to my heart. Sometimes, however, it takes a second voicing of the same subject to let me know—“Hey, this is it!” Such is the case of this devotional.
First of all, if God tells you to take your hands off the wheel while you’re driving, you may want to question what he’s talking about! The wheel I want to talk to you about is the steering wheel of our lives. You see, each of us has a guide leading the direction of our footsteps and life. It may be you. It may be God. Or, then again, MAYBE ITS YOU!
A 2016 Kia Sorento occupies a space in the garage of a person I know.
Okay, Okay, I know what you’re thinking: “Duh! That’s what all cars do.” Let me rephrase that statement: It only occupies a space in the garage.
It’s probably on its second tank of gas in five months of ownership! The wheels are spotless, the car is scratch-less, the engine—barely used—is powerless.
Even if you’re ambidextrous, it’s impossible. Why? Because your mind, heart, and soul cannot be completely fixed on both at the same time.
It’s almost the New Year, and while the “Christian side” of your family will likely pray prayers of praise and resolution, the “non-Christian” side will likely celebrate with inappropriate partying.
Similarly is the workplace and school. The Godly folk seem boring. They never seem to have any fun. In fact, they are too godly—at least, you think. The cool people, the not-so-strict Christians, are normally the popular.
