Warning: Construction Area.
Right Lane Closed.
Detour ahead. …
This spring it seems that every street I travel on in Lawrence has road construction going on. And let me say this, I am not the most patient when it comes to road construction. Inevitably, when the right lane is closing, someone speeds up and wants in ahead of me. Due to the road work, I often have to change the course of my travel. And why does my travel time from one place to the next seem to get longer each time I am in the car?
As I sat down to write this post, I realized how my life parallel’s road construction.
“For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 1:6 NASB)
Ok, so I know He is doing a work in me. I realize with road construction, once the work is complete, the “ride” is always smoother. However, some days I desire for His work in me to be over with already! I want to speed up the process and in doing so; I get ahead of my God.
Then there are those days, He takes me in a direction totally opposite of my plans. A detour of sorts. Traveling on road I am unfamiliar with. A course which scares the “bejeebers “out of me!
The past sixteen months God has orchestrated course changes I would have never dreamed possible. Not only has there been a geographical difference, there has been foundational development. Even with all the changes, there is one thing I am sure of……He isn’t done with me yet….a change is gonna come!
