4 Green Lights
One morning recently, I was on my way to work - a few minutes late, as usual. To get to my job, I have to pass through our neighboring small town, which boasts of a whopping 4 stop lights. However, as everybody knows, even just 4 stop lights can hold you up by several minutes if you have to stop at each one.
Anyway, on this particular morning - as I went through the first light, it was green. And then the second was green - whoa...COOL! Then the third - and by now..I was excited! I was able to go through all 4 lights on green. I realized that in the 4 years that I have been traveling that way to work..it doesn't stand out in my memory if that ever happened.
Okay, now I'll admit..sometimes it doesn't take huge things to amaze me. But the point of my story is that on that particular morning, I found myself praising the Lord for green lights. You see, in order to understand why green lights were important to me that day, you also have to understand that I was not having a good week - things were definitely not going my way! Now, I praise God that I don't have alot of problems in my life, but the one I am dealing with is a doozy! Thankfully, most of the time it is manageable, but sometimes - not so much.
But on that recent morning, I believe God used green lights to remind me that He is paying attention to our lives. He knows every little thing that is going on. And He is in control.
Thank You, God, for green lights!
