Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live my friend. I am happy to see that you decided to stop by to visit with me. During the past several days I have been thinking about trains and railroads. Where I live trains can be heard off in the distance as they roll through town. Their whistles announce the trains arrival and then in a matter of moments the train whisks its way down the track under the controls of the railroad engineer.
As I thought about the the train, the railroad and the railroad engineer I had a spiritual awakening.
For many years of my life I thought that I was the railroad engineer / conductor of my life. Although I attempted to drive my train in the direction of my dreams — with the help of the God of my understanding — I found myself detoured again and again by events that appeared to be out of my control. It was as if someone intentionally pulled a switch on my railroad each time that I made significant gains in my life and about to reach a milestone. It was as if someone or something purposely sought to dash my hopes and dreams.
Consequently, I found myself frustrated and wondering why my hard work did not gain me access to the town of my dreams. For specific insight please read my 3 part series, My Journey thus Far.
Several years ago after praying and thinking about my conundrum, I had a spiritual awakening. My spiritual awakening helped me to understand why I had encountered so many switches as I traveled — with purpose — on the railroad of my life. My awareness helped me to realize that the switches were pulled to both protect me and to keep me moving in the direction of my destiny. I began to realize that apart from those switches being pulled I would probably have never been able to find, much less experience my dreams or my destiny.
I began to realize that the switches I encountered– on my journey — were pulled to both protect and keep me from settling in a town that was not meant for me.
