What a perfect place for a spider web. As my Mandevilla vines creep up the trellis toward the curvatures on top, the insects it attracts are ready prey the spider’s silky trap. Visitors will come seeking nectar, but instead find a curve they did not expect.
Life has a way of throwing us curves. Those unanticipated troubles that pop up, catching us off guard. When they occur, we can try to muddle through on our own. This method works no better than an insect trying to free itself from a spider’s web, though, for inevitably life throws us one of those enormous curves – the kind that seem impossible to bear, and cause even the strongest to crumble.
It is only with God’s help that life’s twists and turns are best handled. He not only helps us endure hardships, but also teaches us how to thrive. God can turn our problems into avenues of blessing. He can spin every one around for good, and teach us how to make the most of life’s curves.
All things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose
