Standing near the shoreline, I happened to notice a draw bridge opening up above the water.
I watched as a boat made its way through.
It’s quite an undertaking to design, construct and operate a draw bridge.
From the very beginning, the purpose of the draw bridge is to open up a passageway for boats so that they can go through.
Because the bridge was so big and so low, I might have mistakenly thought that the boat would not have been able to get to the other side.
There may be things in our lives that look like that bridge to us.
They seem way too big to allow us to pass through to a better place.
It is God, however, who controls the bridge.
At His command, the heavy mass of steel and concrete situations can lift, just in time for us to pass through safely.
We must trust God every day.
Even when the obstacles seem too big.
The Lord makes a path through the sea
and a road through the strong currents.
