Transformed Tuesday: Dirt Road Detours

As a child I remember spending countless hours playing along the dirt roads that surrounded my house.  Once however, I walked to a wooded area where I had never been.  After a while, I realized the path leading home was nowhere in sight.  The tall trees that had lured me away, now seemed overwhelming.

Not sure where I was or what had happened, my parents began to panic and formed a neighborhood search.  By the time my father found me, he was frightened, furious, and relieved all at the same time.  Though I knew I would soon face punishment, at that moment I was simply thankful for my father’s open arms.

Sometimes in life we wander off the path God intended.

We find ourselves taking wrong turns that lead to resentment or regret. 

It’s in those times of loneliness and fear that God is waiting to take the lead.

Micah 7:18

Who is a God like you, pardoning iniquity and passing over transgression
for the remnant of his inheritance? He does not retain his anger forever, because he delights in steadfast love.

His love will cover our wrongs.

His grace will guide.

His mercy will draw us near.

No matter where the road of life has taken you or how far down the path of destruction you’ve traveled, God is there to lead you home.
