Walking as fast as I could, the cold seeping through my shoes, I knew I still had at least 7 mins to make my train- 7 mins for a 4 mins journey. But I wasn’t taking any chances; I kept up the pace. As I came into full view of the station, there it was- my 8:45 train. But how could that be? It wasn’t even 8:45 yet.
Doors still open, I knew I had to run to make it because those doors don’t stay open for long. And just before I James-Bond-jumped on the train, I looked up to the board and behold, it wasn’t even my 8:45 train. This was an 8:30 delayed train that just pulled in.
I got off that train choosing to believe that my 8:45 train will come at 8:45. And it did. I didn’t choose what I could see because what I could see had more stops than what I wanted to see (meaning longer time to get to my destination).
I’m sure you are wondering how I could turn a story of trains into Faith and Spiritual guidance but you see, it had been a while that I made such a decision that I didn’t regret after.
It felt good being guided. For me, this is just a renewal of the guidance of the Holy Spirit in my life. How about you?
Food for thought:
The one who starts first does not necessarily mean the one who will finish first.
Don’t be too much in haste to settle for less than what God has planned for you.
