Hmmm, things to ponder!

Wednesday, January 12, 2011 (11:55 am)

Proverbs 16:9 The mind of a man plans his way: but the LORD directs his steps.

We arrived at the airport late Thursday night with our bags and our kiddos only to find out that our flight was canceled because of a freak accident — a tractor ran into the plane, of all things! So we repacked our ourselves tightly into a small rental car to make the two hour drive to get back home to Arad in the middle of the night. Our flight was postponed till Sunday.

Sunday came and we got on the plane. We flew into Atlanta only to find that not only was our connecting flight canceled but the airport was entirely shut down due to a severe ice storm. There was not one flight out and all the hotels in the area were booked solid. We had to arrive in Baltimore in time for some scheduled speaking engagements, so we decided to rent a car, despite everyone's wide-eyed stares. Now, normally this is only about a 12 hour drive — however because we were driving at a speed between 10 and 20 miles an hour for half of the way, it took us a whopping 22 hours! Fortunately, the ice was so bad that every half an hour, I would have to pull over and break the inch or two of ice off the windshield wipers — so the freezing weather kept me nice and alert! But we got here safe and all in one piece, thank God.

I was thinking about the fact that we are very quick to blame the devil with these kinds of circumstances. But not only does the Bible say that ALL things work together for good for those who love God and are called according to His purposes, but in retrospect — our delay was instrumental in helping a dear friend to be able to make an emergency visit to her daughter, bless two lovely troubled teens and enabled us to share with and bless people we might have never met between Atlanta and Baltimore!

Take every opportunity, every strange circumstance, every change in plans as an opportunity to trust God and share His love and all that He's given us. Looking back I can see that perhaps God may have just have been planning this thing all along!
