There are destinations in life where there is really only one way to get there without having to go through an off trail.
Driving down a long yet necessary trip by myself to Ohio left a lot of time to reflect. I passed through many areas that were “Under Construction” and they do not close off the road. Even so they wait for the darkest hours to get the work on the road done… And still they do not close off the road. People have to pass through. It is necessary, this is the only way to go. It can be a bit inconvenient, slow, noisy, scary and rough, but we proceed with much precaution.
Eventually we get to the smooth road and it feels like you are driving in a space ship. Everything is going well and even fast. Times like this are constant for us, when we know which road we have to take. As we keep moving to where we need to go there is always going to be the rough road area to pass through and the smooth road area. Rightfully so with many signs all around… This still takes you to your destination. Even when the road moves from narrow to wide. So inconvenient… But in the great scheme of things, it is all just necessary. Fixing needs to occur.
“But He knows the way that I take; when He has tried me, I shall come out as gold”
“As they pass through the Valley of Baca,
They make it a spring;The rain covers it with pools.They go from strength to strength;Each one appears before God in Zion.”
