was running a race with Emmi Squirrel. He was trying so hard
to win the race that he did not see the turn in the path. It
changed direction because the tree was in the way. Emmi squirrel
will help to guide Joshua on this path when they race again.
Joshua needs to keep his eyes open for the quick turns.
When we don't see
the changes that God needs to make in us, God has to show them
to us over again and again, until we are willing to be the children
of God He wants us to be. If we are New Creatures in Christ,
we will listen to God and do what He says. When we don't, we
need to ask Him to forgive us and try again.
