Roadblocks can be God-stops

Roadblocks in your life are sometimes God-stops, changing your direction for your protection. Surrendering yourself to God’s construction will make your life so much better than giving in to self-destruction.

If you show love and kindness to those who hate you, they’ll be too confused to berate you, and won’t know how to debate you. Pride keeps us going in the wrong direction. Humility whispers, “Turn around.”

Relocating your life changes your circumstances, but without improved thoughts and emotions, your inner-stances stay the same. Don’t “collect your thoughts.” Evaluate them. Throw out the destructive and tormenting ones. Put the helpful ones into action.

Years go by like miles on the highway, but unlike miles, they’re gone for life. You can’t turn around and make them up.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
