My Grandmother Ida often used to reference a bus being sent by the Lord. She used to say that when He sends it, she will get on board. I always thought she was referring to her travel from earthly living to her eternal destination, but I think it is deeper than that.
I think He sends a bus to confess and apologize, one to forgive and forget, one to rebuke and release, and another to persevere and conquer. We can refuse the ride, but that doesn’t mean He is going to change His plans of getting us to that destination.
I think His grace is offered in the ride, and if we know what’s best, we’ll get on board.
