You thought you knew where you were heading…and then things changed. A chance meeting with a stranger. A nudge from God. Or an unexpected opportunity. Maybe you were on the path to success, but you came upon a roadblock. Now you’re heading in a different direction and your dream seems far away.
You may be closer than you think. God sometimes uses a detour in our lives to take us to our goal.
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by….
And that has made all the difference.
~ Robert Frost
