I can't stand traffic. Not sure if there's anyone out there that actually enjoys it, but for the sake of saying it, I can not stand to be in traffic! Recently, I was on my way to work only to find that the road I normally take was going through some construction. Before you know it my sweet and simple fifteen minute drive was in danger of becoming a half hour journey now. Sitting in my car, frustrated, and worried about being late, I noticed if I turned around and went back to a cross street a could save the time.
I wonder how many times the best way for us to go is a way we might have already passed up? Kind of like when you're on the airplane and the stewardess says, "Keep in mind your closest exit may be behind you." God has an incredible plan for our lives! That's something we've all heard and really believe. But for the plan to come to pass, we may have seasons where we need to turn our heart back to what really matters.
This past Thursday at Flawless we heard a beautiful 5x5 message from some incredible ladies about having a turned heart. From personal stories about encountering Jesus, to years of wisdom being shared in just five minutes, Thursday left everyone us asking what areas of our lives do we need to turn our heart? No matter where you are, God can bring you to the place that He desires your life to be. The question is: are you willing to keep turning your heart towards Him? God may not always give us the easiest path, but He promises to give us the path that will work. That path friends, is Jesus.
I know if I keep turning my heart to Jesus, I'll stay on the path that God has for me. I pray the same for you ladies, regardless of what paths you've been on before, His path is waiting for you. Don't miss it, it's right before your eyes.
