Common fact: The shortest distance between two points is a straight line.
One should never ask why me. It is a question with a dead end. I think that sometimes or maybe most of the time we as earthly humans wander through life trying to get from point A to point B but we do it in a real round about way.
We see something interesting over here.....and then we wander over there......We have our eyes on our end goal but like a drunken sailor our paths are kind of loopy.
Heavenly Father knows that the shortest distance is a straight line so he sends things into our lives/paths that we look at as road blocks when in fact they are hyper drives that launch us faster and straighter to point B.
Does any of this make sense?
