The area of my business is in the neighboring town from my home. During the first of the month, I will go there a couple of times a day. Yesterday, after my wonderful encounter with the Lord in the woods, my husband and I went out there to take care of a few things. On our way back home we came across a road block where a tree had fallen in the road. We were able to go around it by following the direction of the police officer. Later that day we had to go there again and came across another road block! This time a whole company of military vehicles were blocking the roadway. We were unable to pass and had to turn around and take another route. This is what it’s like to navigate through our lives as a Christian. Sometimes God will help you get around a road block and other times He’s the one blocking your path. Make sure you recognize His hand of guidance. Can you imagine what would have happened if we had tried to force our way through the area that the military had blocked? Someone would have gotten hurt and it probably would have been us.
