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”.
