While driving home from church at 9:30 p.m. I came upon Caltrans working on the road. The first thing that caught my attention was a sign; Prepare to stop, One lane ahead. The traffic was backed up while moving slowly toward the construction area. Shortly, we were at a dead stop. I thought to myself, it’s late and now I’m going to be even later. What seemed like an hour was really only ten minutes. A pilot vehicle that was all lite up with bright lights, started leading us across to an unfamiliar lane for the direction we were going. As we followed the pilot, I felt even though I was driving on the wrong side of the road I was being led to safety. I feel the same way sometimes with my walk with God. I may feel awkward at times in unfamiliar territory of situations however, I keep my eyes focused on my pilot, Jesus, that is leading me safely home.
