Change of Direction

I am one of the millions that look forward to Tuesday nights just to tune into “This is Us”. Over the summer I looked forward to the start of season two with such anticipation and so far it has been just as good as the first season. I laugh, I cry and discuss the show with my fellow viewers. My son tells me its my soap opera but I don’t care its just that good.

As I watched last night one of the main characters Kevin who by all accounts has it all, looks, money, career a loving family. It shows him spiraling down. It shows him reliving the major event in his life that changed every dream he had of being a star football player, he gets injured and has to face saying good-by to what he wanted. I found the part in the show when his loving dad tells him yes he has naturel talent for football and he was awesome at it but that he has other things he is great at too, how true.

Yes its just a show but I thought how many times life changes in a blink of an eye. That job, marriage, house, relationship or good health becomes no longer.

We are left feeling like the rug was pulled out from under us. The questions of what will I do or become now? How will I go on?

I know from experience that it’s in those times when I feel the worse if I turn to God he is there. If I allow him to lead and comfort me things will be as they are but my attitude will be better and in time even get good again.

That wonderful cycle of life, the ability to move forward and grow is what makes us better people. If I never had pain I would never be able to know the feeling of such delight and joy or have as much compassion as I do.

To embrace our changes in our directions and enjoy the detour, we might realize we are better off.

Psalm 30:5b

“..weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.”
