Potholes in the Road

Potholes in the road Sometimes we get stuck The Lord can pull us out If we really want But he’ll let us stay there And will sometimes leave us For longer than we’d like Until we learn a lesson Lord, I think I got the idea.

A lifetime to learn

“Job came to the same conclusion that all of God’s mature followers learn: God is great, and we are weak. Sometimes this lesson takes a lifetime to learn. Only then can God’s followers be used and blessed by Him in ways they never dreamed.” —Sherry Kughn, Heart Tree for Empty Nesters, 138
