In the 1967 version of Doctor Dolittle, there was the two headed llama known as "Pushmi-pullyu". That animal has always stuck in my head. To me it has always been analogous of wanting to go two directions at once. A tug of war. One side always wins a tug of war or there is a tie. Both sides can't win. The two headed llama can stand still or go one direction but not go both directions at the same time. The same is true for us. We can stay put or go one direction, but we can't follow two leaders in opposite directions.
Lord, help me to choose the right direction and that direction is to follow You.
