The Lord will allow you to go through many obstacles and dead-end just to grab your attention. In those harsh and sometimes crushing moments of adversity should every man call out to the Lord. He, being so very faithful will hear you and save you from your tribulation. The thing to remember is, do not take the same steps as before, rather make your steps WITH the Lord and save yourself from any extra vexation.
