I always thought of myself as a patient person. I may have to reevaluate that self opinion.  On our way to Bonham yesterday I realized that life was like the two lane road we were on.  Sometimes you get behind a tractor in the country and you can't pass for almost a mile... and then you get around the tractor and you just get up to the speed limit to get behind a truck hauling hay traveling at half the speed limit. You wait and watch for a safe time to  pass him because there is too much danger passing in a no-passing zone. You could kill yourself and everyone else around you.  Carefully you pass the hay truck and travel about 20 miles and find yourself behind a long line of semi trucks trying to change gears going up a hill.  Now what?

Our lives are no different. We are on a journey that God started us out on.  There are things we encounter on this journey not at all different from the tractor or the hay truck.  When we encounter obstacles in life we usually take off another direction.  If you actually turn off that two lane road that God set you out on, you end up in places undiscovered, places you may not suppose to be.  How long does it take you to figure it out before you find a small road back to the original road and pick up the journey to your destination? When we make the individual choice to take another direction, we sure should pray about it first.  Some of those trips are costly emotionally, physically and financially.  They ALWAYS affect those that love us and the repercussions hang around for years.

Be PATIENT my friend... slow down and talk to God about things before pulling out and passing that line of trucks or turning off a side road to find another way.
