"When I add up my miracle, I have double from all the wisdom, relationships, and blessings collected on the way. Look at the company traveling with you, and rejoice over the scenery of your 'long way around'. "
In this podcast by Charlotte Gambill, she explains that sometimes God gives us "instants" and blesses us right away, and sometimes He takes us on "the long way around" to get where we want to be. I listened to this sermon back in the spring, and loved it then. I love it now more because it is STILL speaking to me, and it's still something I need to hear. Do I wish I wasn't still on a "long way around" journey? Sure, a lot of days I do to be honest. But this gives me encouragement. There is much to be gained in this that would not have been- had I been given an "instant". I hope this can encourage you today if you are in an in between time, or on a long way around journey.
