While out in Arizona these past few days, I have bounced back and forth from the nursing home my dad is staying in to make the long and slow recovery from his recent stroke to the nursing home where my grandma (my dad’s almost 92-year-old mom) is staying. There is about an 80 mile drive between the two facilities. As I make my way down Interstate 10, I pass an exit sign which reads Scenic Route…the same name as my blog.
Yesterday, I had this thought.
Somehow, Lord, this too is the scenic route. Even though the road is rough and pretty uneven right now, You know where it is leading. You know what is over the horizon. You know the why.
There used to be a time in my life when I doubted this. Today, I don’t. I know Him. I know what He is capable of doing with the painful and challenging seasons. I know that no matter how abruptly life changes and throws us curve balls, He never changes. I can depend on this.
And because of who You are, Lord…even this is the scenic route.
