We chose a detour and before we knew it, we were way off the lighted path.
Mistakes were made. Life happened. We bought things we thought would satisfy our soul. We made purchases we could not afford and instead of making us feel peace, we are feeling pulled in the struggle from day-to-day.
We reach out for answers and they seem so far away. We miss the peace that surpasses all understanding. The peace the world cannot give us. Life is nothing like what we dreamed of. Nothing like we planned so many years ago. We slowly drifted and began buying into the world’s idea of what makes us rich. True richness comes from knowing Christ.
Is it time for a U-turn?
We serve a God of second chances. Life may not be what we expected, but with Jesus it can be more than we ever imagined!
1 John 4:4 “Greater is he that is in us than he that is in the world.”
