I recently traveled to Tennessee where the weather made driving quite challenging. I had to grip the wheel with all my strength and concentrate on the road ahead. Had I not been traveling with others, I probably would have preferred to stop the trip until the weather improved. But this wasn't an option...we had to continue on the road no matter the weather.
How like our lives this metaphor is! We can find ourselves in difficult circumstances, and the first thing we neglect is God's Word. We make up all kinds of excuses...I'm too tired, my schedule is too full...etc. But we must realize Route 66 doesn't come with exit ramps. God desires us to stay the course, continue pursuing Him no matter if we're facing, rain, sleet, fog or snow. He is the maker of the weather as well as our circumstances. He knows what we need, when we need it.
So, if you are facing trouble - don't stop! Grip the wheel, hang on and you may be surprised where you find yourself when the fog lifts!
