Matthew 3 Are you paving the highway or throwing down gravel instead

Matthew 3:3 'Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for him.'
My thought: What the heck does that mean? Ok so John prepared the way for Jesus, baptizing people in water as they repented for their sin. yeah yeah yeah I know that. I decided to follow the reference to Isaiah 40:3-A voice of one calling:"in the desert prepare the way for the Lord; make straight in the wilderness a highway for our God." I prayerfully mediated on this for a few moments and here is what i think God is saying. Do you ever feel dried up? Ya know your faith? Your life? Your situation? Well God is saying in that dryness, make a way for Him. Make your paths straight for Him. Stop living in your sinful nature and turn to Him. When you want to eat that bag of Doritos, the 10 HO HOS, skip your exercise, forget about reading your bible, turn to Him who gives you strength. God will meet you were you are. He will help you, He will encourage you. Make your ways straight. When you do make a bad choice, repent, ask God to forgive you, he will, he's just waiting for you to ask.
