When it’s easier to go along with the crowd

Isaiah 59:15There is no truth-telling anymore,and anyone who tries to do right finds he is the next target. It’s true. The Eternal One saw it all and was understandably perturbed at the absence of justice.
When you stand for #truth and against
#deceptionand wickedness, you become the bad guy in the eyes of many. – Pastor Adrian Rogers#quote
I’ve been mulling over this blog post until I listed to Pastor Adrian Roger’s sermon titled “A Nation in Crisis.” We are a people who are falling away quickly, and most of us are going along for the ride.

When the Lord changed my life, I resisted because it meant leaving the comfort zone of my own perfect little world. It meant allowing God to show me the things I needed to change. It meant changing the things I believed and the things I did that weren't in God’s plan.

It’s like having a broken leg that never heals perfectly—that still hurts when the weather gets cold, but you learn to dance with the limp.”

I've just been through a long walk in the valley of shadows and I’m glad to be out of it. At times I remembered the good old days and I even wondered “what if I…” or “what if I didn't…” Frankly, both options do not matter.  
Don’t look back.  
Move forward.
God is a step ahead of you.
