Have you ever missed your exit when traveling? You're so preoccupied that you drive to the next exit only to find that the next exit is not only miles away but there is also not a reverse exit that will take you back in the right direction. Instead, you have to keep going further in the wrong direction until you have the opportunity to make a u-turn. In the meantime, you waste valuable time and energy while becoming frustrated. If you had only remained focus on the directions, you would have never missed your exit in the first place.
As the summer season quickly approaches, we face increased travel delays due to heavy traffic and construction. So too do we find delays in our spiritual lives. On this 1st day of June, take some time to read and review the directions for your life. Chances are, there are many alternate routes to the same point of destination. Each set of directions has different turns and streets to travel along the route. You might face unforseen construction, delays and even some accidents. On each route , you will see different points of interests along the way. Depending upon what you encounter, you might decide that you want to go to an alternate destination instead of the one you're currently headed to.
You still have time to launch a new leaf on life a new you. Pay close attention to each step of your journey. It's not too late to adjust your route! Don't fail to take advantage of the many opportunities to bypass unnecessary obstacles and waste your resources. Listen intently to the GPS of your heart and spirit. It will always guide you to the desired destination.
Whatever you do, stay focused and don't miss your exit!
