Whether you are headed on a short trip or a long journey, you are gonna have to pull over.
To refill the gas tank, check the tires, fill your stomach or stretch your legs. You pull off the street and into a parking space.
Parking spots are meant to be temporary stopping places not final destinations.
The point is to do what you need to do while parked and then get back out there on the road.
Don’t get stuck at the rest stop.
Don’t start living at the gas station.
Get a move on.
Remember the reason you got in your car in the first place.
Remember where you wanted to go.
Whatever your definition of success is, I would bet that you haven’t gotten there yet. I would hope so or else you have aimed too low.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Jeremiah 29:11 NIV
Don’t get distracted.
Don’t make a temporary parking space, your stopping place.
Get back on the road the God has for you and go after it.
