Every u-turn requires a slowdown and a proper change of lanes. Let repentance be the same way as you change the pace of your life and direction. Even in rebuke from the Word, be willing to turn towards the wisdom of God in Christ. The pursuit of foolishness has no restraints and blurs the lines of truth and reason.

Growth and Comfort do not mix. We do not grow in righteousness without struggle. Daily we are being pruned, letting the power of Christ love be deeply rooted in us. We are growing like newborn babes in the Word, teething in pain as we nourish ourselves in faith. It is only by faith that we grow in Christ as He dwells in our hearts.

It's because there is life in the seed of the Holy Spirit. Though this body and earthly desires are perishing away. We have life more abundantly in Christ because He is alive
You must drive the speed limit its the law. Do not keep up with the flow of traffic of this world. It will mislead you and cause you to go way pass the speed limit or even way under. You must pay attention to the speed limit and adjust your speed appropriately. There is a delicate balance of law and grace as you press the gas. Not enough grace and there is no power to even reach the speed limit. Too much grace and you have passed the speed limit and stepped your way into wilf
Oh Lord there are so many things I want you to breathe on. For you to be life into this situation. For you to bring life into my relationships. I can't imagine living without the gift of wind. On a cool day not able to feel it's breeze. Or at an oceans shore not feeling it's strength blow all over my body. Wind under control inspires but wind out of control terrifies me.
