A bridge construction project blocked off a major road forcing me to choose an alternative route along a path seldom traveled. As I drove, rows of purple and yellow flowers classified as weeds by many lined the road. As the sun shone and illuminated their colors, and they swayed in the gentle wind, I reflected on the beauty in perspective.
Often times those things in life which are difficult create beautiful growth in our lives. It’s all a matter of perspective.
I had coffee with someone this morning who I had met while working in a difficult job situation. God allowed our paths to cross and continues to use our connection for His good. This country drive with the rural flowers was on my way to a funeral visitation. While there, God reminded me that He is using me to touch lives.
My stomach issues…the reason I started this blog…have been used to connect me to others in my life.
Even my anxiety has been used for His good as I continue to grow and work through things in my life.
Sometimes, life doesn’t always take us the way we intended, but a road less traveled may have blessings along the way.
