An Ode to Traffic in 4 or more parts

Dreams filed away
Trying to keep the tears at bay
On life's highway one is left to wonder
is being stuck in traffic worse than going in circles
engine idles so we grumble unable to accept the temporary delay,
so today, we fail to pray, fall prey instead to misery and doubt.
Grasping at straws, looking for an alternate route we go without Him  in search of a bailout
a worthless workout, 'cuz fuel burns, time passes and we are still back where we started, running around in circles.




A man's heart plans his way, But the Lord directs his steps.(Proverbs 16:9)

so get comfortable and embrace the traffic ....



....This is the intro to this traffic thingy that i was suppose to write in March but never got around to it. It might be 3 or 4 parts it still is just thoughts in my brain
but yeah 
back in Indy (after 3 years in Houston & California)
G.I.G: God is good!!!!

I have found this true in my life. I am going one way and he is constantly nudging me in another direction.

Oh, what a wonderful God we have.

@ Myne Whitman: i have to admit that most times the activity of running around in circles is temporarily more rewarding than being stuck in traffic
