Winding Roads

Life would be so much easier if every road we traveled was straight and our view never became obstructed, however that is not always the case. 
Our roads in life will at some point will began to curve and twist. 
Some may be sharp and narrow ones while others may be wide and large.
It seems the winding roads come out of no where.
They appear when least expected and tend to, at times, present an unwelcome surprise.
A jolt to the tranquil .....
A bang within the peace......
A disruption of the joy.

Over time I have learned when I can not see what is in front of me or what is around the next bend, it is then my trust in my daddy God must be unwavering . I can not simply trust him just in the times of joy in my life, I must trust him in every area of my life.
 And that includes winding roads. 

I  am coming into a new season of  change.
 A shift I can not quite understand. 
I have not had any major catastrophic events.
 Nor have I had anything happen that has knocked me off my feet.  
 But my road has become somewhat winding. 
For me this can be an unsettling feeling. 
For those who know me, know I like to know what is next in my life. 
OCD syndrome???
Stating the obvious???

What I have learned and continue to learn is to heed the voice of my daddy God when my road becomes winding. 
To recognize the lessons in each curve....
To apply Godly wisdom with each step.....
To take notice of the scenery and focus on the beauty instead of the struggle......
To embrace hope.....
To exhibit unfailing trust......
To extend unconditional  love......
And witness victory through each one. 

I do not know what this new season holds for me or what new changes are on the horizon.
I may not always get it right....
Or even understand the reasoning. 
 I do know I am learning to lean more on my daddy God.
 I am learning to find the beauty in every curve.....
To tune out the unnecessary banter of the world...... 
And recognize his wisdom in the scenery.

Winding Roads......


Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him and he will make your paths straight.
