In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. (This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.) And everyone went to their own town to register. ~ Luke 2:1-3
There are times when we are "sent to Bethlehem" grumbling and wondering why we have to stray away from our plans.
Traveling down a new path doesn't typically come easy or fit into our idea of life. It could be a rough unmarked trail.
God has a way of working way ahead of us, preparing the scene for His Grace to take the main role in our life when we arrive.
Sometimes we don't understand the present situation or the crazy things unfolding around us, but we must stay on His path.
This Christmas, remember that God has a plan and He has been working well in advance of your arrival. How has God unfolded your path so far?
