It is the Lord your God you must follow, and him you must revere. Keep his commands and obey him; serve him and hold fast to him. ~ Deuteronomy 13:4
Are you caught up trying to clear trails and lay down tracks of your own? If so, you will constantly struggle. You must decide to follow God's path.
Don't make life harder than it needs to be. God has already given us the pathway. Just jump on the rails, put fuel in your engine, and go.
God built the rails and sent Jesus Christ to put them to work. All you have to do is focus on the engine, the cargo, pulling as many boxcars along with you as possible.
