Today’s Reflection

DO YOU SOMETIMES get a sense that where you are right now isn’t where God intends you to be — that somewhere you took a wrong turn or headed in the wrong direction? Do you ever look around and ask yourself how you ended up where you are? Do you have moments when you wonder where God is?

Perhaps you’re feeling stuck in a rut of habit and complacency. All growth seems to have stopped in your job and in your relationships with family and friends. The trouble with a rut is that it’s comfortable. It’s easy. You don’t have to think. But underneath stirs this nagging feeling. ….

In our Christian walk, it’s only when we step off the broad and easy road that we discover the joys God has for us. It takes courage to leave the comfortable rut and step out boldly. However, this is when you feel that tingling sense of God with you as you begin to fulfill God’s purpose for your life — rather than just spinning your wheels in the same old place.
