A to Z Answers: U-Turns Are Uplifting!

U-turns may be illegal in some states, but they are the stuff of Heaven. At least, they may provide entertaining fodder for fellowship in the eternal kingdom someday.

Earnest believers will likely confess to making u-turns often … maybe even daily … in this life.  Oh, how we need His grace and mercy every single day!

The faithful love of the Lord never ends!
    His mercies never cease.
Great is his faithfulness;
    his mercies begin afresh each morning.
(Lamentations 3:22-23, NLT)

Several years ago, a popular automotive bumper sticker said, “God is my co-pilot.” Maybe that’s more often true than such drivers would like to admit. For as long as the Lord is the co-pilot, rather than actually steering the vehicle, the journey may require u-turns.

How often do we grab the steering wheel, insisting on our own directions?

Once we do, we’re likely headed for another u-turn.

As much as I am enjoying the journey, I find myself looking forward to the day when I will no longer veer off course and need to make a u-turn. For only then will I know I have arrived … exactly where I was created to be.

  1. Hello, Linda! I'm grateful for the u-turn! Sometimes it's a relief to retrace my steps to get where I'm supposed to be. :)

    Have a lovely weekend and happy A to Z!!

  2. Think of all the interesting places you'd miss out on if not for the u-turn!
