Connect the Dots


Do you ever wonder what in the world God is doing with you? Sometimes it seems like the path we are on is only filled with detours, u-turns, and even wrong turns. It is a rare thing for someone to have a clear path and walk straight through to the end. I recently heard a commencement speech by Steve Jobs where he said, “You cannot connect the dots looking forward, you can only connect them looking backwards.” There have been times when I thought I was completely wasting my time, and that what I should be doing was totally blocked. Times when I was spinning my wheels and going nowhere, so finally stopped the spinning and stayed where I was. Looking back now, I can see God’s work in each moment and how I was where I was supposed to be. If my wheels had gained traction, I would have missed some very wonderful moments indeed. So, whether you are driving straight, on a detour, or sitting on the side of the road, ask God if that’s where He wants you to be. Ask God if He wants you to go somewhere else. Then sit back and enjoy the journey. The dots are connecting.
