Sanctified Tourist

Living holy and fit both spiritually and physically in today's culture.

Thoughts from a rainy Texas highway. You see, on the highway, floods will deceive. They will hide danger. They will draw you in. They will call to you.

Turn Around, Don’t Drown

I wrote this blog in 2016 and it seems appropriate to re-post it since my state is currently suffering from the remnants of another hurricane, Harvey.

In my part of Texas we are suffering from steady rains…remnants of Hurricane Patricia with another southern system joining it from the Gulf of Mexico, and a front hitting us from the north.   I flew into Houston last night on a bumpy flight, and was welcomed by this rainy weather.  On my two hour drive home, we noticed highway signs flashing warnings to “Turn around, don’t drown” if roads became flooded.  You see, on the highway, floods will deceive.  They will hide danger.  They will draw you in.  They will call to you.  This is getting spiritual y’all. In your rush to get to the other side you might become careless, thinking to yourself that you can handle it, all the while inching closer to being swept away.

Wait!  WAIT!  W-A-I-T!

Don’t get swept away by anxiety, by fear, by longing, by sorrow.  Wait on the Lord, He will rescue you.
