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
