The Road To Success Is Not Straight

The Road to Success is not straight.
There is a curve called Failure,

A loop called Confusion
Speed bumps called Friends,

Red lights called Enemies,
Caution lights called Family

and Flats called Jobs.

But, if you have a spare called Determination,
An engine called Perseverance,

Fuel called Hope,
Insurance called Faith,
And a driver called Jesus,

You will make it to a place called Success.

Look Straight Ahead

“Let your eyes look straight ahead; fix your gaze directly before you” – Proverbs 4:25

What are you looking at today? Not in the natural, but with your spiritual eyes. In other words, what is in the forefront of your mind and in your heart? Are you constantly dwelling on your problems or things that have happened in your past? In the natural, you will move in the direction that your eyes are looking. In the spiritual, it works the same way. Whatever you focus your mind and heart on, you will move toward. That’s why today’s verse tells us to look straight ahead. If you are constantly dwelling on your problems or things in your past, wondering “what if,” then you will stay right where you are. But if you choose to forgive and release the past, then you can focus on what is ahead of you, and you’ll begin to move forward.

God doesn’t want you to live in the past. He wants you to keep growing and moving forward. Make the decision to meditate on His goodness and focus on His promises. Look straight ahead so you can see His blessing and move forward into the life of victory He has promised you!
