Faith in the midst of “Detours, Distractions, and Bumps in the Road”
I think we all wrestle with worry, especially when things happen that we either cannot control, or when we must wrestle through situations, in order to come up with a viable solution. “Bumps in the road” and the unexpected detours do not alone have the power to distract us. Those “alternates” are what can add interest and richness to our journey. We often cannot choose our circumstances, nor the events life presents us, but we can choose how we will respond. Our character is molded and our faith grows when we trust God in all circumstances. However, when we give unchecked power to distractions and “bumps in the road,” we become frozen in fear, and we stop moving forward.
