Don’t you hate roadworks?
The county council have decided to do some roadworks right in the middle of what has been the most congested area that I drive my son through each day.
I was a bit annoyed when I heard about this but the bizarre thing is that for the past few weeks since the roadworks have been in place my journey time has actually been much quicker. This picture was taken at 7.40am when a week or two before the traffic would have been gridlocked.
You see, the roadworks are only in place between 9.30am and 3pm and they have had such negative press that I think people are avoiding the area completely. I have been driving through just before 8am and around 5.30pm and rather than sitting in traffic as I have done for the past few months I have been driving through this stretch without having to stop.
There aren’t many people who like change but we need to be open to giving things a go.
I feel sad when Christians and churches are resistant to change, especially when God says to his people ‘I am doing a new thing’. God wants to work in new ways in all of our lives, but are we open to that
