Confessions | Off Course

Do you ever feel like you are traveling in circles and never seem to reach your destination? I often find myself trying to take control of my course instead of letting God chart my course.

“Sometimes when we listen, we may realize that we are off course. Jesus gave us his Holy Spirit to be with us in those moments of course correction. When you get a sense that you’re off course, that is the Spirit whispering to you. He’s advocating for your best interest–that you would become more like Christ. Sometimes we have a sense of being off course, and instead we begin to beat ourselves up, feel shame, or even fear. The enemy accuses. The Spirit advocates. Pause to recognize which you are experiencing and you’ll know which voice you are hearing.” (source)

Listen. Give in. And let him lead you.
