"A few days earlier, a car had slammed into the rear of my van, throwing my vehicle across the highway as if it had been catapulted from a slingshot. The injuries I sustained from the collision instantly fragmented my life, creating a whirlwind of confusion and uprooting 41 years of stability." [Worthy In His Eyes...Preface]
Have you ever been in a similar type of situation? Not necessarily a car accident, but perhaps another type of situation where everything familiar instantly became unfamiliar? I call it "Life's Detour Sign." In my case, it felt as though the familiar pathway I had been coasting on suddenly became shrouded with confusion and unpredictability, a huge detour sign forcing me to turn onto a different pathway. My husband and I began to realize that we were going to be challenged far beyond any struggle we had ever experienced......
Perhaps you can relate to some of our feelings:
~Confusion ~Fear ~Uncertainty ~Questions [Galore!]
All of these, and more, spun in my head like a kaleidoscope as I tried to peg what was wrong. Upcoming posts will take you on the journey with me as I share how God held me, sustained me, grew me and loved me through some of my darkest days.
Faith-steps: Then vs. Now [Truths God has taught me]
Until my next post, I leave you with a powerful promise from the Lord. He is the One who knows what lies far beyond that Detour Sign. He will never take us to a place where He is not in complete control. That's what He does for us.....but what is our role? To fully trust Him.
"Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul." [Psalm 143: 8 NIV]
"All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be." [Psalm 139: 16 NIV]
"Remember your promise to me; it is my only hope. Your promise revives me; it comforts me in all my troubles." [Psalm 119: 49-50 NLT]
