Last night I was at a meeting at a church in a nearby town. That town has a lot of road construction happening in the blocks surrounding the church. As a consequence there are detour signs almost everywhere.
The sign that I noticed last night made me chuckle.
Who ever put up the sign, situated it so that it was directly in front of the main doors of the church with the arrow pointing to the doors.
It made me ponder, what if every time our own lives were under construction we took a detour through the church?
spending time in prayer?
seeking advice from trustworthy spiritual advisers?
being guided by the Holy Spirit?
The mind boggles.
More to the point what if I were better at following the detour signs that God places in my path, so that my transition times flowed with his mercy and grace?
The heart soars at the possibilities.
