Ecclesiastes 7:13 (NKJV)
13 Consider the work of God; For who can make straight what He has made crooked?

Who can fathom the paths that God has set for us? Also, who can find a better way than he plots out? Of course we want to take the interstate, but he might have something for us to on the back road.

FYI, yesterday I went from 60+ to 20 mph in a VERY short space on I-88.

Even when it seems He isn't good, or doesn't care, He is, and does. I think of poor John the Baptist locked up in a dungeon sending his disciples to ask Jesus, "Are you the One, or do we look for another?" Shortly after that Jesus called John the greatest prophet there ever was.

Two cars ahead of me had a blowout, but the driver continued on the road. Everyone in the lane had to slow down drastically, until the driver decided to pull off to the side of the road. That could have ended very badly. God kept care of us.

Two days earlier, about the same time there was a bad accident about a mile further down the road. That was much worse. God was also in control of that situation.

Amen. God is good.

I'm sorry that I've sometimes not fully trusted his goodness.

The bottom line is: God is good.

Thanks for sharing and encouraging us.
