In my heart I guess I've always believed even if I didn't reach a certain goal, it was ok because my intentions were good. I'm beginning to realize intentions without actions aren't enough. My goal now is to examine areas in my life and determine if I am traveling in a direction that will allow me to reach my destination. I know the journey is important, but how sad it would be if year upon year I had spent time on a path that led me away from my desired destination. The Israelites spent 40 years in the desert traveling around in circles. My prayer is that I will identify the areas in my life in which I am traveling in the wrong direction, find the nearest exit, and take the actions necessary to make an immediate U-turn.
