Isn’t it a funny thing to unexpectedly find yourself in an answered prayer? Only some months ago, you wished for this moment, to be in this civility, this warmth of familiarity, and now here you are. Only some time ago, you didn’t expect all this to unravel the way it did, and yet, here you are. When you thought all hope was lost and broken, here you are face to face with a crooked path made straight. Suddenly, one of your favorite scripture passages comes alive yet again:
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
on your own intelligence do not rely;
6 In all your ways be mindful of him,
and he will make straight your paths.
Because in essence, that’s what you did: you trusted the Lord. In your weakness and shortcomings and flaws, you trusted. And indeed, one day – today – you see that He really has made straight your paths. If He did this with this, He will do it with that. Trust. God is awesome.
