Is Your Truck in a Sinkhole?

Ever get halfway into something before you realize it was a bad idea?
.
We laugh when we see other people in the middle of a self-induced pickle, but when it happens to us...not so funny.
.
Even Scripture says, "There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end is death."
.
How many times have you charged ahead full speed, ignoring the cautions from those on the sidelines, because you are so certain that your particular skills and giftings can make this work? How many red-faced apologies have you had to make afterwards?
.
The whole world may be laughing at you, but isn't it comforting to know that God isn't? He offers to take your broken mess and fix it when you finally come to the end of your best efforts and give it to him. He promises that he will make everything you give him "work together for the good," when you choose his way over yours.
.
And sometimes it takes driving your firetruck into a sinkhole before you are willing to do that.
.
But even that might be the best thing that's ever happened to you--if it's the catalyst that propels you to God.
