I love the way God works. He might get us from point "A" to point "B", but it is rarely in a straight line. Usually there is point "A1", "A2", "A3", etc.
I am finding I have been on one of those journeys myself lately.
My 3M (you have to do some thinking and back reading to figure out what that means) has been in my life for a year now. But I certainly did not walk a straight line from where I was to where I am today.
The journey has had some pain, frustration, and a fair amount of heart-felt prayer along the way. I thought the Lord was leading me down one way, but other circumstances told me differently. As I look back on that experience, I can see the much needed growth. I REALLY NEEDED that growth.
I am so grateful to the Lord for seeing in me the places where I need the rough edges chipped off, and smoothed over. No criticism, just matter-of-fact work.
How can I not love Him for the way he handles me?
