January 2: Out of the Icy Rut

Out of the Icy Rut

Anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun! (2 Corinthians 5:17)

I was entranced. As I rose quietly above the snow-covered treetops, the serenity of the Rockies captivated me. The air was crisp and clean, the sky was blue, and the snow glittered like a dusting of diamonds. Skiing down each powdery run was an adventure. 

This time, about halfway down, my skis locked up. They were pointing straight down . . . in a rut. My brain kept telling my legs to turn, but my skis did not respond. My equipment kept racing to the bottom of the next hill, so I was surprised when my skidding, snow-covered body came to rest on a mogul below.

In our lives, we must decide to make every day count. If we do not intentionally choose to enjoy each day, our lives too quickly get stuck in a rut.    

We are made new in Christ; through him, we are able to enjoy life fully. Point your path away from life’s ruts. Dream big, live fully from your heart, and make the most of every day.

Break a new trail
