I was leaving home one evening to go to a nearby town. Normally the drive is only 10 minutes, down one single road. I left my house with a plan. A 10 minute mission. 2 minutes into my “plan” I hit a road block. I just brushed it off and took a different route. It would be longer, but I still knew the way. You’ll never guess what happened next. The road I was planning to take instead was also closed. Instead of turning around and going back home, I stayed the course. I was nervous. The sun was setting and I was in unfamiliar territory. Thank goodness for road signs!
I finally made it to my destination. But not after thanking God for leading my through some beautiful farmland with a beautiful sunset. He knows my heart LOVES driving and finding new ways to get places, and he also knows how stressed I get when things don’t go as planned. He combined those two to teach me such a simple lesson – just follow Him. He knows where I will end up. He knows my future and He knows my past.
“If anyone serves me, he must follow me; and where I am, there will my servant be also. If anyone serves me, the Father will honor him.” John 12:26
