Did you take a detour?

You took a detour, so what?

Maybe it wasn’t intentional.

Maybe it was.

The detour despite, God is still in control.

He knows where you’re going, and He would take you there.

It’s true, what they say:

Delay doesn’t mean denial.

Let God lead you; you cannot get so lost that your journey becomes a waste of life.

Make the most of the season you’re in, and don’t ever give up.

So what if you took a detour? –

Home is still not that impossibly far away, child of God.

  1. “Delay doesn’t mean denial.” This is good, Boma. Sometimes people feel that once they take a detour, it is all over. But not so. We can always get back on track. Thanks for this.

  2. Beautiful words, Boma! I needed this reminder today. When I begin to worry when a detour bends my expected path, God reminds me that nothing takes Him by surprise. I can rest in that.

    I’m your neighbor at #RaRaLinkup today.

  3. Even though the detours are what makes us “us”, we hope that they will all lead back to God. Reminds me of the story of the prodigal son. Great post!

  4. Love your poem! Just like on the road, detours are often designed with our protection in mind and actually get us to our destination faster than if we had chosen our own route. thanks!

  5. Beautiful encouragement, Boma. We need this reminder when life takes on a detour … especially when the detours are of our own making … God is over it all. Blessings, my friend!

  6. “Home is still not that impossibly far away, child of God.” Yes, no matter how far we stray, God is still with us and will bring us back to the right path.
