Roadtrip Gone Awry


Camera: Nikon D60
Aperture - f/7.1
 Exposure- 1/200
 ISO- 100
Lens- 22mm
No Flash.
It's pretty easy to get big ideas. My friends and I get them all the time- sure, they seem great at the time, but you never can tell just how they will end. Making a spur-of-the-moment movie sounds great until you are running down the road bathing in your own sweat on a 100 degree day. Or what about that road trip that starts out to be terrific fun, but ends with you stuck on the side of the road for two hours?

Making plans can be a great thing, but we have to be careful not to get too stuck on them, for they don't always turn out the way we think they will. Sometimes they do not even turn out at all- just ask all those people who have planned beach trips only to discover it's pouring down rain the next day! Just goes to show, as much as we would LOVE to be completely in charge of what happens in our lives, we cannot have total control

But guess what? It doesn't mean there is no order to the seeming craziness that happens in life and the universe. God is still in control, and for those who live their lives to Him, they will someday get to see the big picture of why things happen the way they do, and know that all works out just the way He means it to in the end.

"Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.” Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.” "- James 4:13-15
