God never wastes a good detour! Detours are rarely planned….unless you are a good traveler! I rarely plan them! They often include bumpy side roads that take me to the middle of nowhere! But God has a way of using what I think is a detour to teach me the most profound lessons. In the process, I find the detour was not a detour but a part of His plan to teach me, stretch me, humble me, strengthen me, produce further surrender, realign and reroute me. All this accomplishes great glory for the Lord.
