The Road you're Driving on


Are you at one of life's potholes?

...Or a bump in the road. If your on a hill, there's always an easy way down, but God wants us to take the hard way. I find it rare when The road is smooth. When it's easy. 
The road is hardly ever pretty and when it's there, it doesn't last for long. 
No matter were you are right now, God will help you get through.
The reason we hardly get smooth roads is because that the only place we feel we need God. God wants us to rely on him, and it hard to do that if we think we've got what it takes. If your at a smooth place in life, be warned, that's when it's easiest to fall away from him. If your at a bump, or a pot hole, Satan will try to tell God's abandoned you, but I think it's easier to trust in God, because you can't see where the road is heading, but God is your GPS and he will tell you the right way to go, and if you trust in him, he might just let you have a clear picture and or a straight path, but whatever happens, just be faithful because God is in charge. God believes in you, he won't put you where you are right now unless he knew you can handle it. 

For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are--yet was without sin.
Hebrews 4:10 (NIV)

Jesus has been where you are. He was human, he walked this earth. He felt pain and endured suffering. But he didn't sin. The fact that your not God means that your not perfect, but you must strive to be. God forgives you, but he wants you to do what's right.

The LORD is slow to anger and great in power; the LORD will not leave the guilty unpunished. His way is in the whirlwind and the storm, and clouds are the dust of his feet.
Nahum 1:3 (NIV)

He almighty and he will do what he wants.
Love is painful. If you love God, you have to strive to please him, you must be selfless and get to know God. You spend time with him and learn his ways...because you love him. 
Love calls calls you to do things you don't want to do. It calls you to step out of your comfort zone and serve. If you love God, you should strive to serve him. If you truly love God, you should WANT to do this.
