Ruts in the driveway tell me spring is here
One thing I don't like about living in the country is the mud. As soon as the snow melts our driveway turns to mud. I'm not talking nice little mud puddles but the type of mud that will suck in a vehicle in 2 seconds flat. Each day we have to leave the house we pray that the Lord will keep our vehicle in the tracks that have already been made. The mud tries to pull us in one direction or another but we're safe as long as we stay the course.
This is a lot like life. The evil one will try to pull us in one direction or another, tempting us with what the world has to offer. Without the Lord, it would be so easy to veer off the course and into the mud hole. But like driving our vehicles through the mud, we'll be safe as long as we stay the course and keep our eyes on Jesus.
