How did I get here?

By Tuesday things were not going well for Jesus. He had made a mess overturning the tables of the money changers in the temple. He had a lot of explaining to do and knew that time was running out. In my life when I often feel confused and frustrated that life is not going the way I planned. How did I end up in this mess? How do I deal with this very difficult person? Why didn’t I see that coming?! Why do I have to deal with that health or family issue when so many around me don’t? How could I have misjudged how this would play out? These are the times I rely most heavily on my faith to guide me and comfort me. I have to believe that God will show me the way because sometimes it’s just too much. Then I take a deep breath, whisper to myself Guide me and trudge through the mess until I get to the other side.
