It’s 4:10 AM, and the streetlight quickly turns green at a big intersection. Great – no waiting! I cross a six-lanes where traffic will soon take over. It’s clear sailing! I approach the next juncture, and again, the light immediately turns green as I approach it. God is with me, controlling things I cannot see down this long, dark road. Every light turns green as I’m heading out of town. They quietly whisper, ‘Safe travels! See you when you return.’ I thank God, for the green lights in life.
In the rearview mirror, it’s lonely and dreary, with an occasional red or yellow glowing in the dark, but they quickly fade away. The Lord works in mysterious ways, doesn’t he? Sometimes we wonder if we’re headed in the right direction. We must build trust in Jesus’ to lead us through life’s traffic by navigating turns of faith. But, we have to discern and be obedient to His signals. God loves us so much that He will give us warning signs, a yellow light. Perhaps impending disaster is drawing near. He wishes that no one perish nor succumb to Satan’s ploys and traps, and suffering major consequences.
Daylight is now approaching, and I’m greeted with smiles at every destination. God makes every single day worth smiling about in the grander scheme of things! I return to my domain where my angel awaits me. She’s my bride for life, you know? I just thank God she’s another green light in my life. So, I pick up a pen, listening to the Lord’s message, and I begin to write. It’s a terrific time to be alive! I reverently give thanks.
Are you steered by green lights, or do red or yellow precede your direction? It was once said, “If you don’t change your course, you will end up where you’re headed.” Those words resound in me as I look to God, always expecting the lights to be green. The guiding words of our Almighty Father is the only power that brings us comfort in daily life. I, just thank God for the green lights!
