"I will.. make a way." (Isaiah 43:19)
A peaceful little park was just up at the end of the street, so I
strolled up to check out the view of the water. What a surprise to see a
small pod of dolphins, there in the early morning surf. In what seemed
like slow motion, they moved through the waters, rolling in sync. I
stood, mesmerized by the grace of beauty of God's creation.
As I sat on a nearby bench, the humming of a little bee caught my eye. A
yellow jacket, maybe? It landed next to a small hole, then wiggled
backwards and flicked away the sand with its legs.
The hole became larger with each flick of the insect's legs. When he
disappeared, I stuck a twig down the hole and it was fairly deep. Maybe
it was a way to make a nest, or perhaps a way to hide from the day's
That little bee was a strong kicker. I thought about how sometimes I
kick my heels, or drag my feet, and stir up some dust, try to make a way
for something I want to happen, or fix.
These are lyrics from a praise and worship song Don Moen sang: "God can make a way,
where there seems to be no way, He works in ways we cannot see, God can
make a way for me. He will be my guide, hold me closely to His side;
with each new day...He will make a way."
We can always ask the Lord to make a way. He is more than able, ready
and wiling; "nothing is impossible with God." (Luke 1:37)
That's good news.
