going off-road

      Sometimes going off-road changes you for good.    

“We want lives of simple, predictable ease -- smooth, even trails as far as the eye can see -- but God likes to go off-road. . . .  The challenges that make our hearts leap and stomachs churn invariably . . . grant measures of wisdom and joy we would not experience otherwise. . . .” Tony Snow

“Do not let your heart be troubled. . . .  Trust Me.” John 14:1
