“My day is not going in a straight line.”

Good afternoon! Welcome! I’m currently sitting at a borrowed computer on a borrowed internet connection in order to post. I thought as I started this week, the first week of September and the first week of school, that I would finally be able to get back into posting regularly.

This is a walk I took with my mom. I was winding around on purpose. But this image of that day is definitely how I feel like this week has gone. 

Things sometimes just do not go according to what you planned. In Uganda they say, “My day is not going in a straight line today.” When I first heard that phrase I instantly loved it. It is such a perfect description.

We all know that the fastest way to the end means is by following a straight path. If we want to get where we are going fast we take the straightest path.

But sometimes our plans are not our own. And instead of feeling anxious or upset about this I need to be reminded that my purpose is still the same and I should not take my eyes off of the end goal, or lose hope.

Proverbs 3:5-6 comes to mind. “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own insight. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.”

If we keep our focus on Him then our not so straight paths to the finish line of the day won’t matter all that much to us. He will bring peace and strength to us. He will make our path at least appear straight because we will have peace knowing we have put our trust in Him, our focus will be on Him.

May you find peace today in trusting in God to make straight your paths!

Christ is Risen! Let us Rejoice!
