Detour Ahead


originally uploaded by Debbie Pryor.

Have you ever driven an old familiar route, one that you know will get you where you want to go, only to arrive and find a detour sign? Oh sure, the sign tells you to turn here, but you had no intention of turning right, you wanted to follow the withered path of familiarity.

Upon arriving at a detour sign, you can do one of two things: you can follow the sign or you can turn around and head back to where you started. A detour can be thrust upon you with little notice or it may come at a time in your life when you thought you had it all figured out. In life's journey, there will be many timely detours. Quit being intimated by the uncertainty of what lies around the next bin; instead, be courageous and advance forward because this next detour may lead you to the greatest victory you ever experienced!

Proverbs 16:9 (MSG): We plan the way we want to live, but only God makes us able to live it.

Just a Thought

I just got back from my morning walk, and it wont' be too much longer before I am rushing out the door to begin a new day. I simply want to share a short thought taken from Psalm 37:4 which reads, "Delight thyself in the Lord; and He shall give thee the desires of your heart." What a blessing it is to be able to give the Lord praise for His excellent works. Let's not forget to be thankful for the simple pleasures of life.
