Then they cry out to the Lord in their trouble, and He brings them out of their distresses. He calms the storm, so that its waves are still. Then they are glad because they are quiet; so He guides them to their desired haven.
Last summer was my dad’s Family Reunion in California. In making preparations and plans on how we were going to travel, my sisters and I decided we would drive and our parents would take a flight.
It was quite the road trip, but that’s another story! After spending time with family, we were preparing to head back home and our dad had a conversation with my twin sister and I about the drive back. He wanted to let us know we may hit road construction near Fresno. We said “okay dad.” He reiterated again there is road construction occurring near Fresno. In my mind I was thinking what’s the point we will not be able to avoid it. We’ll have to go through it, detour around it, or wait it out. Hitting road construction is just part of the drive.
Most of us will hit some sort of road construction of life, encountering situations leaving us with few options. Our choices may be to, go through it, detour around it, or wait it out. Road construction can be, tiring and uncomfortable especially when the sun is beating down on your car, it’s down right annoying. When life presents unavoidable situations cry out to God, the situation may not move right away, but you’ll experience His peace. Our heavenly Father is there to help guide us through, He wants to get us to a desired destination.
I’m sure my dad was just being concerned as a father should. Our heavenly Father is also concerned for our well being. He’s a “Good Father!” Will you trust Him through your road construction?
God’s ways are not our ways.
Prayer: Dear Lord, thank you for another day that I can come before you and ask for guidance. I don’t always know or understand what is going on but you know. Thank you for loving me and even teaching me patience while I wait it out. I trust in your wisdom for my situation. In Jesus Name~Amen!
Have a blessed week.
