“In their hearts humans plan their course, but the LORD establishes their steps.” (Proverbs 16:9)
I’ve had the opportunity to travel around the world preaching the Gospel. While I certainly appreciate the privilege, I’m a pretty uptight traveler…especially when layovers are involved.
It’s like airport purgatory. While these layovers have tested my patience and have been a cause of frustration in my life, they’ve also taught me a valuable lesson.
They’ve taught me that a temporary stop to a journey — while inconvenient — doesn’t mean I won’t reach my destination. In fact, in all of my layover experiences, I’ve never been permanently stuck somewhere.
The layover is part of the process – and sometimes necessary to get you where you need to go.
If you’re experiencing a layover right now, you might as well get Starbucks and make the most of it!
God has not changed his mind about your final destination.
