Prepare the way of the Lord; make straight in the desert a highway for our God.

Definition: A Routine is a customary or regular course of action.
Your general routines groove your life
When your life falls into a set routine; it limits your experiences and interactions. You see only what you have seen in the past. Don’t be imprisoned by your immediate enviroment. Take a new path.
A new routine is required to embrace a new thing
And no one puts new wine into old wineskins; or else the new wine bursts the wineskins, the wine is spilled, and the wineskins are ruined. But new wine must be put into new wineskins.” Mark 2:22
Release old routines to establish new routines
