ROAD TO SOMEWHERE
On my ride to Georgia, on Tuesday I saw this billboard sign:
THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A ROAD TO NOWHERE…EVERY ROAD LEADS SOMEWHERE.
I started to think about this billboard and how symbolic it was (considering we were on a long stretch of road :))
This is a short entry, but I simply wanted to remind you that EVERY road that you travel in life will lead somewhere…even if it’s a dead end-it led you somewhere. You may not like the road you traveled, but it was a road to somewhere. It is the lessons, relationships, tears and smiles that you haD along the way that are the most important part of the journey. These are the things you will need to carry as you journey down the road of life; the things that help shape you into the person you are today.
There is no such thing as a “ROAD TO NOWHERE”, for example, maybe you had a business idea that fell through; that’s okay, everything you learned during that process will prepare you to make better decisions for when you try again. Did you have a relationship that started out wonderfully and seem to hit a dead end? That’s okay too, everyone cannot travel with you for the entire journey. Some people are placed in your life at a certain time to “entertain” you on your “car ride”. You learn life lessons together, you learn more about yourself, you create memories (whether good or bad), make connections, eat snacks, etc.; God uses them to prepare you for the next stage in your life–but I’m pretty sure you know this already 😉
Try to get the lesson out of every road you travel, whether painful, tearful, inspirational, funny, educational, there is a lesson to be learned. Don’t miss out on what you are to take from something/someone because your too busy trying to read the directions. Allow God to travel the road with you and read the directions; that way you will never miss a turn.
