“Now this is what the LORD Almighty says: ‘Give careful thought to your ways.”
Haggai 1:5 NIV
This verse isn’t just about what your doing but about where you are going. It’s not about the way your living your life as much as it is about the way your life is headed.
Where are you headed?
If you keep doing what your doing, do you want to go where your going?
The phrase “Give careful thought to your ways” is actually a Hebrew figure of speech that literally means “put your heart on your roads”.
In otherwords: Where will your heart be down the road from today?
It is easy to get caught up in bad habits to survive the current crisis, surrender to discouragement because of the current disappointment or spew toxic words at the ones you love because of the current stress you are experiencing. The question is, “If you keep doing what you are doing what will happen to your relationships? Your body? Your heart? Is this where you want to end up?
Is what you are doing today taking you down a road you want to be on tomorrow?
If you don’t want to go that way, stop right now. Turn around. Ask for directions (from God) to get you on the right road.
I am so glad I waited this long to change” said no one ever.
