My dad says that most people see life like a game of pinball. Most people think that their ball has to hit certain levers on the way down or they lose the game. If the ball doesn’t hit those levers just so, then they think there must be something wrong. He says that life just isn’t that way, and that the levers we think our ball has to hit may not be the way God is working. Sometimes when we think our ball isn’t hitting all the right levers just the right way, it’s actually exactly doing what it’s suppose to.
