Posts Tagged ‘steer clear’

I have seen this on Facebook- have you?

 

 

 

I began to think of ways to further this analogy – dangerous, I know.

The same can be said for side view mirrors.  They are panoramic so you can glance at those on either side of mirror-appear-1you, pray for them and determine where they are in your life.  The danger is when they appear closer than you think, so they have too much influence on your journey.

Perhaps  you don’t see them at all because they are in your blind spot. Their negativity or destructive agenda almost collides with you and you have to correct your “thinking” course in a hurry.

Or maybe you are just not aware of them being there, and a glimpse reminds you that you should acknowledge them in your life as your paths cross so you can pray for them, guide them or direct them as God sees fit. Maybe God wants you to ride side by side, or perhaps you should steer clear!

However, your main focus should be on where God is leading you in the “now”. In other words, what lies directly ahead. That is not being self-oriented, but acknowledging that He has a plan for you to follow. Selfishness takes over when you grab the wheel and try to steer yourself, eyes glued ahead, oblivious to what is around you–or worse, so focused on where you have been you veer off the road!

This New Year – who will take your steering wheel? Will you follow His guidance as to when to look in the side views and when to look in the rear view? Will you obey when He tells you to just focus on what is immediately ahead?

Have a great trek in 2016!
