Staying on Track

Ever think you’ve got everything on track and are doing just what God wants you to do and then you’re thrown a curve ball?  It can be confusing. We’re trying to do what He’s told us to, then things go south. Or to the right, or left. Whichever way they go, we’re off track. 
But we haven’t done anything wrong. Maybe we haven’t even done anything different than we were before.  So what’s going on?  Maybe we’ve kept on the straight and narrow, but the path has turned. 
If the path is God’s will for us, it’s changed. Sometimes a little, sometimes a lot.  That’s one reason we need to be in communication (prayer) with God—to hear what He wants us to do. 

Easier said than done.  It’s simple, but not easy.  Back to my One Word for this year: Discipline. 

What do you have to discipline yourself to do these days? How do you go about it? Don’t forget to join the conversation.

I love this perspective, Ellen. For me, I'm trying to be more disciplined in my eating habits -- taking better care of God's body.

Hope you can stay inside today. There's no better day for a hot cup of tea than a stormy one. :)
