Your life has been idling at this intersection for too long. This was only a temporary stop, not a place to park. As you pulled up to this season of life God intended you to stop and like driving a car you needed to move forward again, but you haven’t.
The honking horns behind you are those things that need to move forward with you in this journey. Your indecision is causing a traffic jam for you and for those traveling with you. It is time to start moving forward again. God is not done with you – He is only done with this season where you have decided to stop and park.
There is more of life ahead for you. There will even be other stop signs like this one in your future. These traffic signs are not your destination – they only help you get to your destination safely. Like this stop sign each one serves a temporary purpose.
While you have sat here parked and idling you have forgotten the joy of spiritual and emotional travel. Put your life in gear and begin to move forward once again. In this renewed journey you will rediscover the joy of forward motion – a joy this stop sign cannot provide.
