The Road Ahead

Bible Reading: Romans 8:18-25

While I was driving home on the motorway, dark clouds and intermittent rain showers surrounded me.
 
As I approached a bridge, I could see a motorcyclist who had wisely stopped underneath to get out of the rain. I tend to notice motorcycles because my husband and I used to enjoy riding so much. 

When he died from cancer several years ago, I missed going on those pleasurable motorcycle rides with him. 

Now when I see other motorcyclists, I thank God for the wonderful memories my husband and I shared together as we enjoyed the beautiful scenery on our riding adventures.

Soon after I passed the bridge, I drove out of the rain and the road ahead was dry. I thought of that motorcyclist and how all around him it was dark and rainy, but just ahead the surrounding conditions were clear and dry. 

And then I thought about my own life, my husband’s battle with cancer and how often I have felt afraid to believe that, no matter what the circumstances look like around me, God will provide.

While I may have to wait a little longer, my road ahead is going to be better than what I see now. God is faithful and has promised to work all things for good for those who love him.

Prayer: Dear God, thank you for the promise of your presence through the Holy Spirit, even when our days seem dark and troublesome. Amen
