Road Work Ahead

Much like the roads we travel on, our "spiritual roads" we travel to return to our Father in Heaven often have "road work ahead." Trials, tribulations, sins. All of these effect our spiritual road. Fortunately, much like the construction crews who repair the road, our Savior helps repair and correct our errors, comfort our sorrows, and helps us be successful in this life.

We all have "road work ahead." Instead of dreading it, we should embrace it and be grateful for the trials we have been given (after all, it could always be worse.) We will have the urge of impatiency for the trial to be over, but in the end, it will only be beneficial for us. In the end, it will make us better--much like driving through a construction zone: the traffic may creep by slowly and it may feel like it drags on forever, but in the end, the road ends up being better then it was prior.

I'm just grateful I have my own handy dandy construction crew with me whenever I call upon him, and so do you. Jesus Christ, our Savior, our Lord, our Redeemer. He is there for us, to help us, to keep us safe. :)
