What happens when you don’t get what you want? Or, it’s what you need but it’s not what you want. Like right now it’s snowing. At the end of April. When it’s supposed to be spring?

What happens when things don’t go smoothly? When it takes more time to accomplish a task. When the difficult conversation is hard. When you don’t. have. time. for hard.

What happens when there appears to be a roadblock standing in your way? Do you push through? Turn back? Go around it?

Sometimes we throw tantrums. Sometimes we give up. Sometimes we blame others. (Not that I would know anything about these options.) But every now and then we find a way and trust that God has got it. (Sometimes.)

The Israelites were running to freedom, but Pharaoh’s army was chasing them. It wasn’t exactly what they’d hoped for. It wasn’t easy. And there was a river standing in the way. (Read Exodus 13 & 14) The story of how God helped them through it is a story that can help us through life and the roadblocks we face.

We’ll be looking for you tomorrow at 9:00 or 10:30 to celebrate what God has done and what God is doing to help move us along the path.

Grace and peace,
