A Veritable Vacuum of Rational Reason = Politics
Revival of Those in Rebellion against the Lord and His Christ = Hope of Nations
Overabundance of Available Labor Coupled with Paucity of Required Labor = “You’re Fired”
Rest and Renewal in the Arms of the Reigning God and Resurrected Christ = Peace
Strategic Redeployment = Retreat
Recognition that Jesus Christ is My Only Recourse in Face of Ruin = Faith
Imbalance between Current Resources and Obligations = Bankruptcy
Realization of My Lack of Control and God’s Replete Supply = Reality
No one likes the “Road Work Ahead” sign especially since the cops “always” camp out in the orange zones…something about a 35 mph limit paired with a “fines doubled” sign.
Number 5: Follow the signs you want to…and the ones you don’t.
Number 4: It’s going to get ugly before it turns pretty.
And this applies to gardens, craft projects, and some babies (but don’t tell their mothers I said that :0).
There is something disconcerting about driving in the pitch black with large concrete barriers on either side of you…especially when you can’t see the road more than 100 yards ahead of you. It actually feels a lot like life at times.
Number 3: Life may feel like a construction zone but God never builds bridges that go nowhere.
Number 2: Jesus’ death on the cross completely covers all our sins past, present, and future (Hebrews 9:12-14). So, penance is not a Biblical concept...but if it were...driving through construction zones would serve well for road rage, line jumpers, and other impatient people.
I was driving home from work, in the dark, after a swing shift. It was late, I was tired. I got to one of construction zones (which seem to be ubiquitous in my area) and realized vaguely they had changed the traffic pattern. Thank goodness my lane just went straight, I thought, doubting whether my fatigued brain could have handled anything more complicated.
The next morning on my opposite commute, I had to snicker because someone else’s fatigued brain had not been able to handle the complication either and they had plowed over the temporary “stay right sign”.
Hence, a few tips from road construction…
Number 1: Change is inevitable so you better be paying attention.
