I sketched this on the plane to Atlanta this August. I almost missed the flight, but God opened some paths. After takeoff I pulled out my devotions and Bible and this was the verse. He reminded me that it is His plan not mine that will work.
I am not sure what that right direction is right now. It is my busiest time of year with lots of Christmas orders, custom requests flying in every other day, shows, and art to create—and our modem broke. I can use Jeff’s business computer when he is not home because mine runs off WiFi–no internet at my desktop. At least I can still scan and print! I just can’t do things on my own time.
Maybe that is God’s way of making me slow down in this busy season. Yes, that is how I am going to think of it. This maybe one of those times that I am being a bit headstrong, and God knows I need something else.
Do you ever feel like He does that for you? Stop right now, really consider, is God putting up some roadblocks? Are you fulfilling what YOU want, or what HE wants? What paths are free of detours? Maybe we need to take a deep breath and head down those back roads for awhile.
