The Straightest Distance Between Two Points Is NOT Always a Straight Line

U-turn road sign

Yesterday while driving off the Lassen Volcanic National Park, part of the pathway into Redding, California, I was once again drawn to another reoccurring sign. We tend to hold to the truth that the closest distance between two points is a straight line. However, that path is not usually the course of action in my life. While the path may be winding and seem somewhat circuitous at times I am keenly aware that the footsteps of the righteous are ordered by Yahweh. While no one ever arrives at the destination by turning around. Sometimes the patch between two points is not a straight line. Be flexible and allow Holy Spirit to lead your life safely to the determined destination and don’t be afraid if the road is not always straight.
