Why are you still sitting still?
On the side of the road looking lost. You found yourself in this roundabout… and a slowdown turned into a flat. And it’s like that time you ignored the pressure issues. That time you kept going. That time you ignored the signs. That time you were left stranded…a destination due to your own navigation.
Hit the pavement and fix it.
Stop that nagging feeling of “why me” that keeps driving you crazy…And learn how to follow your own roads and stay in your own lane.
Respect other drivers. Stop giving in to that toxic traffic. You don’t know their detours; just simply be prepared.
There’s more peaceful alternatives. Ain’t you tired of still sitting still by now?
14 What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, 16 and one of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit? 17 Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.
18 But someone will say, “You have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith without your[a] works, and I will show you my faith by my[b]works. 19 You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe—and tremble! 20 But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is dead?[c] 21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered Isaac his son on the altar? 22 Do you see that faith was working together with his works, and by works faith was made perfect? 23 And the Scripture was fulfilled which says,“Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.”[d] And he was called the friend of God. 24 You see then that a man is justified by works, and not by faith only.
