What do you do when things don’t happen the way you wanted them?
We can make some great plans, but sometimes they just don’t work out…
Have you planned something recently that didn’t work out like you planned?
Our trip got longer when the traffic came to a total stop, so we took a detour.
At first, it stressed us, frustrated us, but then I realized the detour was just what we needed.
Wayne enjoyed the rustic countryside and I saw something I had wanted to see for years!
They were beautiful. So beautiful.
I am so thankful for His little surprises.
Have you heard the jingle “Everything is better with bluebonnet on it”? Well, I can tell you first hand everything is better with thanksgiving on it! So, I stood on the edge of that road and worshipped!
His gifts go far beyond the beauty of sunflowers or brilliant sunrises.
We see His fingerprints in creation, but we see His heart in the cross.
Our salvation cost God big time!
It’s freely received, but it didn’t come free. Jesus paid the price for our sins.
There are so many facets of his nature that awe me.
His goodness. Kindness. Grace. Forgiveness. Healing
What is a facet of God’s nature that awes you?
Was my frustration, my anxiety, my inconvenience actually His “DIVINE SETUP”?
Life is full of detours.
Even when you follow Jesus there will be times that things don’t work out like you planned, so you are forced to take a different direction.
So, what do we do when that happens?
Throw a fit? Yes, I’ve done that a few times, but it didn’t help the situation any.
Pout…I don’t even want to tell you how many times I’ve done that, but all pouting accomplished was to make me feel absolutely miserable. It’s crazy to do that to yourself!
You can trust Jesus!
I’ve learned Jesus is trustworthy…I can trust Him even when life gives me a detour. I can trust Him; even when He leads me down a path I’d rather not take.
Ask God for directions.
Proverbs 3:5,6 NLT
5Trust in the LORD with all your heart;
do not depend on your own understanding.
6Seek his will in all you do,
and he will show you which path to take.
Don’t forget…sometimes the detour isn’t a detour at all—it’s a Divine Setup!
