Proverbs 15:24 (NKJV) The way of life winds upward for the wise, that he may turn away from hell below.
Remember, life is like a journey—a long and winding journey. On the journey there will be both moments of delight and sorrow. There will be long boring stretches where nothing of significance seems to be happening and then suddenly there will be seasons where the pace is so intense that you find yourself gripping the steering wheel tightly and whispering prayers under your breath.
The key is to keep “winding your way upward” by making wise “God-honoring” decisions.
God is not going to drop you into hell every time you blow it. There will be potholes along the way. There will be times you get distracted and veer off the road. There will be times you make a wrong turn. When these things happen make adjustments—quickly repent and keep winding your way back toward the upward way.
Eventually, by the grace of God, you will make Heaven your home.
