This girl has got a lot of miles to run today! Trip downtown to women's shelter, errands for sleepover of teen girls at my house tonight, the opposite direction for a music lesson, and time at the funeral of a friend's father. I have my "road" mapped out, and I don't have a lot of room today for the unexpected.
When they got to Emmaus, Cleopas and his friend convinced Jesus to stay for dinner; when the Savior blessed the bread and served them ... "their eyes were opened, and they recognized him" (v.31). Then He vanished. And though it was night and they had come a long way, they went the seven miles back to Jerusalem to report all that had happened to the others in the group. I bet they were glad that they made room for the unexpected Stranger that day on the Emmaus Road.
help me not to be in such a hurry, with tunnel vision on my agenda, that I miss YOU coming to open my eyes and enlighten my heart along the way.
