Have you set a goal, then veered aside a bit and lost track of direction toward that goal? Then give up or change the goal. I have. And it is frustrating. It is like wandering off a path.
In thirty years of full time ministry sharing Jesus is the norm. And so is helping others internationally with ways to share their faith in God more effectively. Living out this lifestyle, five simple steps have evolved to help me stay on the path. Here they are:
PRAY (a lot), LISTEN (wait), HE LEADS, FOLLOW, HE BLESSES!
A simple way to remember these five steps is to think of a star. Five points to remember will help you keep on the path that is straight.
STRAIGHT PATH! Give it a try the next time you loose focus. Start with PRAYING a lot. That might be the easy part unless you are not experienced enough yet in your spiritual growth. The hardest part is LISTEN because it involves waiting and we are not very good at waiting . . . for anything, especially for direction from the LORD.
