Ahhh, The joys of a traffic jam…

So, I start my day very early en route to my destination.  Not even 10 minutes into the drive, I see a traffic jam, and the next thing I know I’m stuck with no escape from the dreaded stop and go.  Now, it’s ironic to me because it’s very rare that I find myself in a traffic jam.

This is the type of situation where I pray for patience and endurance because I would normally get really irritated by something like this.

I wait and wait for traffic to clear up, to no avail.  So, I find myself reluctantly terminating the trip to my destination and headed back home to write to you, my readers.

As I turned to leave the traffic situation, I found myself wondering if this wasn’t God’s divine intervention and protection, that rescued me from more than just a bad day in traffic.  Perhaps there was a purpose in how my morning turned out.

Do you ever feel that sometimes inconvenient things happen for a reason that is bigger than even you can imagine?  Like being somewhere you hadn’t anticipated, just to experience a gratifying moment later on.

…and then it finally hits you because you’ve just put the pieces of your day together and realized your blessing, that came in the midst of your temporary inconvenience.

    All in all life is only a small % of what happens to us and the other 90% is how we chose to react to it.
    Your blog is very inspirational and a breath of fresh air. “Jehovah-Rapha” – (Good Who Heals)!!!!
