Linking up with Charlotte and Ginger at Spiritual Sunday
"Faith is like radar that sees through the fog-the reality of things at a distance that the human eye cannot see." Corrie Ten Boom
We were away...up north....in the mountains...having a blast....and then....on the way home....coming back....we took a wrong turn...and drove for five hours before realizing we had no idea where we where going.
We flipped on the radio and heard a storm warning for the next day. We wanted to get home before that happened...but we couldn't make it.
Finally exhausted, we pulled over, stopped the car....held hands and prayed. We didn't make it home but we found a perfect hotel....and they they had a room and waterpark for the kids. We had a great night.
My 15 yr. old said, Everything happens for a reason.
I thought.....There was no reason this happened.....we just made a wrong turn.
The next morning driving home...we heard on the radio....a terrible storm had passed in our hometown.....trees down, electricity out, damage to homes and cars. My dgt. piped up, Everything does happen for a reason.
God knew.....our wrong turn turned out to be a right road. Makes me think.....just b/c something doesn't make sense at the time.....I'm gonna trust 'cause He knows what's down the road...He knows how to protect us....and keep us safe.
To everyone in the path of Hurricane Irene...stay safe......Praying that for all of you.
This is my song of praise to You for who you are and all that you do......
