Missed Cues, Wrong Turns...

We can let ourselves off the desperate question, “Am I in the right place?”  “Have I done the right thing?”  Of course, we must sometimes acknowledge sins and mistakes and we must try to learn from them; but we should not foster the kind of worry that leads to despair.  God’s providence means that wherever we have got to, whatever we have done, that is precisely where the road to heaven begins.  However many cues we have missed, however many wrong turns we have taken, however unnecessarily we may have complicate dour journey, the road still beckons, and the Lord still “waits to be gracious” to us (Isaiah 30:180.
     - Prayer by Simon Tugwell
