The day was perfect as far as Ashley was concerned. Blue skies, a few white puffy clouds and sun shining brightly. She had put the top down on her convertible and just enjoyed the drive. Cars going the opposite direction whizzed past her. Traffic was very heavy, but she was being careful. So when a police officer stopped her she was confused.
“Where do you think you are going?” the officer asked.
“I’m not sure,” said Ashley, “but I think I am late. They are all coming back.”
“Lady,” said the police officer. This is a one-way-street and you are going the wrong way!”
What one-way-street are you traveling? Check closely. Is it the one you want? Choose the street that will get you to your goal. All those worrisome things that pound their way in to our thinking are going the opposite way. So we must learn to work around them.
Sometimes it seems that the whole world is whizzing past us. The temptation is great to go with the flow. However, the less traveled road, the one that keeps bumping into things that swerve us from our final destiny, is the only one that will get us where we want to go – heaven.
