I remember when I was traveling to Knoxville, TN as I was going down the mountain there was always two sets of tunnels that I had to pass through. That was a land mark to let me know that I was halfway to reaching my destination. The thing is I couldn’t get to my destination without going through those tunnels. There was no short cut or any other route that I could take. Coming back home I had to go through those same tunnels. Though the tunnel can sometimes be dark and the way through seems narrow, it is unavoidable to get to the otherside. Life is a mystery and it change with out notice. It can be very painful and joyful all at the same time. You can find yourself saying, “If it ain’t one thing, it’s always another”. There are some things that we can avoid by the decisions and choices that we make. Then there are some times when life just happens and no matter what we do the obstacles, the situations, circumstances can’t be avoided. It is all part of the process to us becoming. It’s like baking a cake, if you leave out any of the important ingredients the cake will be a flop. No matter your destination you can’t get to it without going through the process. It is through the process that we are created and it pushes us to becoming who God has called us to be. My encouragement to you today is don’t give up, but go through the process. Look beyond what you can see right now. There is something greater on the other side of the tunnel.
