The Lord is so faithful. Even when the road is bumpy, He is still at our sides calling us to him, asking us to come and sit in his arms, while He protects and comforts us. Because when the bumpy road gives way to the smooth path, it makes us all the more closer to Him. He wants to have a relationship with us. I think that He allows those times to happen just so that we will stay in a passionate relationship with Him. He will always be faithful. Everything that he works into play is in accordance with his good and perfect will. Even though the road may feel bumpy now, think about how the road will be after all the bumps and lumps. It will all turn out right in the end, for those who put their trust and faith in Him.
