A 5-hour drive to Tallahassee turned into a 10-hour nightmare. 4th of July traffic was horrible. So when I got up this morning, I vowed not to do that again. Somewhere in Dothan AL., Betty's GPS said, "Take a right turn." What? You're leading me into the middle of nowhere. A right turn here, left turn there. I finally had it. I pulled up the original route and saw that there were more delays and accidents than I wanted to deal with.
We were going into the woods.
For the next 90 miles, we saw some of the most beautiful mountain landscapes you've ever seen. Gorgeous homes nestled in the woods. Cattle ranches and horse farms and so much more.
It was worth the trip, and we arrived at our room with time to spare.
You never know what direction God is going to lead you in. While you are headed to the right destination that doesn't mean you're going to take the most obvious route. Let God lead you, there is more to learn from the journey than how to read a destination.
PRAY: Dear Jesus, lead me where you want me to go. AMEN.
P.S. To my FFWC friends, obviously I will not be there tomorrow. But I would ask that you go and support the church family that is leading services. You're going to have a great day, I guarantee it.
