Obstacles are not fun. Just when you think you are headed in the right direction you feel like you hit a roadblock. You feel like you are progressing in your walk with God and then you run face first into temptation.
"Obstacles are those frightening things you see when you take your eyes off the goal." ~Hannah More
This statement is so true! When our eyes are on Jesus, life feels pretty good, but the second we take control into our own hands we lose our confidence. Let Jesus take the wheel of your life. This is a daily process. Every morning when you wake up, you must realize that it is all about Jesus. Trust Jesus and let Him take control. Let your eyes focus on Him, not the obstacle.
"I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus." ~Philippians 3:14
"Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight." ~Proverbs 3:5-6
