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.
Back in the ‘80’s there was a movie entitled Planes, Trains, and Automobiles. I had my own version this past weekend while traveling to Florida to attend my niece’s wedding. Due to weather and other concerns we needed to rebook flights, rent cars and access trollies. We got everywhere we needed to go, enjoyed the wedding and the family, and returned home without harm to an ice storm, later than we intended but safe and sound. Through the whole adventure we had to trust so many people to give us good information and to process our needs. Many were under considerable strain themselves but the overwhelming majority of them were helpful and even pleasant. It’s incredible to think that in our culture we routinely set out on trips covering thousands of miles to places we’ve never been on vehicles we have little or no knowledge about in the midst of strangers. If we can be so trusting about these journeys, can’t we trust God with the bigger journey of our life? How will you trust God this Lenten season? This week?
