Don’t you find frustrating that whenever you’re about to do something yet another thing comes up? I often think that is one way of life making jokes to us. But I don’t think it’s funny.
Our life is like a journey; sometimes we know where we are going and sometimes we don’t. But there’s something satisfying whenever we’re focused on a goal and we are working hard to achieve it. We often set our minds on goals especially if we had previous others that could never materialize.
But then the joke’s on us: life happens and detours appear. It’s like standing in front of an intersection where we our road to the North divides into East and West. Whenever this happens in my life….I feel so lost.
I know I should read the Bible; but when it has to be about matters of the heart just reading the Bible isn’t enough. Fasting and prayer will make God real in our lives. I honestly don’t know how people can manage whenever they have to deal with these situations. When I was far away from God; my life was in chaos. I even had panic attacks because I didn’t have God’s support. I felt alone and I was alone.
But now in this moment when the detour is just in front of me; I know what I have to do. It’s still confusing, it can still be painful….but I have hope. We all have hope. And we don’t have to lose it.
“Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed. The Lord works out everything for His own ends-even the wicked for a day of disaster.” Proverbs 16:3-4
I hope this message makes you stop for a moment from wherever you are going. Just think, read & pray. Godspeed!
