The obstacle is the path.
Too often we spend too much time preparing the path for the person; when we should be preparing the person for the path. Ask God for the humility to focus on how we can improve ourselves in a way that will be pleasing to Him rather than worrying about the next path we think we need to take in our life.
But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.
2 Peter 3:18
