Facing decisions in life can be like taking a road trip.
As we drive down a street that is not busy, we can see things clearly, we can coast, or maybe even get a bit bored because it’s become dull and lifeless with little traffic along the way. But as we travel into the highway of life, and come upon a city with tall buildings, lots of landmarks, trees and other traffic that blocks our vision, we may get distracted, disillusioned, or even confused at where we are headed.
Then, as we drive a bit further – we see what we perceive as our destination, we can see the intersection up ahead at a distance – In our zeal to get to the turning point, we get excited, perk up but forget to ask God which way to go.
Sometimes we want to make a decision to turn BEFORE we get to that intersection.
