It’s easy to grieve for them: all the things we miss because we aren’t looking or aren’t looking the right direction, the roads we don’t go down, the friends who might have been ours.
But look the other way at the serendipitous missings which might be discoveries. A few minutes of rest missed to run an errand, a turn missed because of distraction, and a “For Sale” sign that might have been missed if it hadn’t been for the unexpected errand and wrong turn . . . . that might have been missed if I’d not driven into the neighborhood asking.
We don’t know the end of this particular story yet, but we know that “those who seek the Lord lack no good thing” (Ps. 34:10). In other words: we’re not going to miss out on goodness, seeking him.
Linking up with Kate Motaung for her Five Minute Friday free-write on her prompt, miss. The pink “miss” button takes you to her site.
