This town is located in pleasant surroundings, as you can see. But the water is bad, and the land is unproductive.” (2 Kings‬ ‭2‬:‭19‬ NLT)

It was one of those Mike-is-a-Moron  moments that happens WAY too often. My car just wasn’t running well: slow taking off, slowing down quickly when letting off the accelerator, sluggish in every aspect. And every where I went, it smelled like someone was burning a cat! My frustration meter was pinging like a fire alarm! And then I saw it. My emergency brake had been mashed and never released. All I could do was pop the pedal and shake my head. Problem solved. 

Sometimes we wonder why our life stays off kilter. All the ingredients for good living are there, so why do I seem held back? Usually it’s because of internal problems in us, like a knack for negative thinking, a need for control, or being prone to fall for certain temptations. These issues, whatever they are, prevent us from living optimally and happily. If not dealt with, your life will be filled with nothing but failure and depression.

Are there areas of your life in which you repeatedly experience defeat and frustration? Does there seem to be an obstacle or barrier holding you back from the victories you hope to experience? Is it a struggle for you to be productive in certain aspects of your life? Let God give you a much-needed Life Inspection so you can be free. Life’s too short to stay down! Live well! You are loved today!
