Red, Amber, Green

Sometimes life seems like a set of traffic lights. On occasions everything seems red and to stop. Expected letters don’t arrive, phone messages are not answered and all business seems to stall.

Then a time comes when the cogs of life start moving, amber. Hospital enquiries become appointments, phone messages are taken up and friends are ready to co-operate. Just as suddenly life goes green and it is go, go, go. Everything seems to be taking place all at once. We can hardly cope with all the activity. There are just not enough hours in the day to deal with everything.

The Bible tells us that there is a time for everything and a season for every activity under heaven. The clue is to know where we are in the set of traffic lights of life.
