Edgar Bergen is widely considered the greatest ventriloquist who ever lived. How did he develop his interest in throwing his voice? As a boy, he ordered a book on photography, but received a book on ventriloquism instead. Naturally, he was disappointed. But it was this mix-up that changed everything!
Every successful person I know has taken a major detour in his or her life. For every photographer who became a ventriloquist there are millions of addicts who became recovering addicts.
How does this change happen? In short, “The Lord directs the steps of the godly” (Psalm 37:23).
It is our willingness to allow God to redirect our steps that changes everything.
Recovery Step: Take a hard look at your life. Does something need to change? Does God have a new work to do in your life? Allow this to be the first day of an exciting new journey.
