Making a path for your troubles to follow

The RIPPLE Effect for today: 06/09/2016
Making a path for your troubles to follow


Be very careful that you are not clearing a path for your troubles to follow you. Have you ever noticed how fire fighters cut paths so that major brush fires will follow; detours the fire so that it will not cause more destruction? In life we need to make sure we do not clear a path for the troubles in our lives to follow us; they will. The fire fighters are professionals; they know exactly how to create the perfect detours many times. In life we are not the experts at averting and avoiding certain road blocks and pit falls; we think we are clearing a path for us to run away but in reality we are clearing a path for our troubles to follow and catch up to us. Sometimes we just need to walk by faith and stand our ground; the rains will come to wash away not only our doubts and fears but to douse the raging inferno trying to consume us.


Our FOCUS for today: Face your fire, harness it then bathe in its warmth.
