Jenni over at One Thing has started Metaphor Monday, and since I actually have one (Yay me!) I thought I would play.
I am not a very patient person behind the wheel. I have been know to drive a fair distance out of my way to avoid waiting.
The other night I was coming home and my route was to go over train tracks. As I got close to the tracks, the bar came down and a train beat me to it. (I wasn't tempted to outrun the train. I am a giant chicken).
I mulled over the idea of going some other way, some detour so I wouldn't have to wait on the train. sigh Any effort of getting around the train would end up taking much longer than just waiting.
Then I got to thinking, how often do I do that with God.
How often do I get tired of waiting for Him to do something and want to take over. How often to I try to detour around His path for me and end up delaying something that I want/need/ask for.
Why is it so hard sometimes to "Be still and know He is God."
