Bless the Broken Road

Short post today. I had a difficult time elaborating..but felt there was really no need to say in several words, what can be said in a few.

I was listening to Pandora Radio yesterday, when "Bless the Broken Road", by Rascal Flatts started playing.

I have not heard this song in a few years, and sad I have been missing out.

I started listening to the words, really listening. Immediately, I realized that it fit perfectly with my life, and was a beautiful comparison to my relationship with God.

The funny thing is, a few years ago this song would not have meant as much to me.  Like in the song, I was going along 'my narrow way'.

Life happened.

Dreams for a certain future, were lost.

God had a different plan for me.

My road was broken.

All the twists and turns led me to His 'loving arms'.

If my road had not been broken, I might not have been led to where He wanted me to be.
I cannot even imagine my relationship with Him being as deep, if I would not have traveled this 'broken road'. The things I would have missed out on! The relationships I have made... The trials, that made me appreciate Life... So many things, would cease to exist. It has made me view my journey a little differently.

The words in this song that will stay with me the longest are, 'it's all part of a grander plan'! ..What truth!
I know there is a design. He is the designer. I have no clue what plan I am a part of, but He is up there, orchestrating it.

God Bless my Broken Road...for it led me straight to Him.

Proverbs of my favorites.
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and He will direct your paths."

"Bless the Broken Road" Rascal Flatts...Soak in these lyrics.

I had to share with you a picture of my two adorable nieces on Halloween.
I died laughing when I saw these two....How cute is this?!
I hope it brings a smile to your face like it did mine.
Have a Beautiful weekend!!
