An appointment last week had me in Niagara Falls. I thought my town had large potholes, but those streets I was on were filled with potholes and made ours look like little golf holes. Trying to miss them while driving was almost impossible and they sure can be hard on a car.
We know the paths we take in our lives are not always smooth. Sometimes those potholes are impossible to miss and they can be damaging to our spiritual life. The jolts can jar our innermost being and cause us much turmoil and make us lose heart.
Life isn’t easy and we may need to slow down and become more aware of those things on our path that would try to destroy our faith.
Just remember; God doesn’t always remove those potholes, but He can and He will help us and protect us as we call on Him. So when you hit one of those potholes in whatever form it may be, remember we are victors in Christ. Don’t let it swallow you up.
“But thanks be to God who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” I Cor. 15:57
No pothole is too great for our God to get us out of, because:
“Greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world.” I John 4:4
Keep your eyes on the road ahead! Better still; keep your eyes on the Lord.
