It seems like God has been speaking to me a lot in the car recently. Yesterday I was leaving the house when a huge grasshopper jumped onto my driver’s side window. At first the noise startled me and then as I continued driving I was fascinated seeing it that close up. What amazed me was that for miles he clung to my window before finally being blown off.
I was thinking wow that poor little grasshopper is now a long way from home and family and friends (that’s of course assuming that grasshopper’s know these things). In any case, God then spoke to me that we do the same thing. One little decision that we think is inconsequential (hopping on window) leads us many times into a life that we never expected. Often times this new life and lifestyle is not what God wanted for us and we end up losing our family and friends because of it.
So before you leap into that big decision, make sure that it’s not a vehicle that’s going to carry you in the wrong direction.
