In Transition?

The two disciples who were walking the road to Emmaus were in transition. You know how, when you go through a traumatic experience, your emotions catch up with your body about three days later, and all of a sudden you "go to pieces"?

Devastated by the sudden turn of events of Jesus' illegal arrest, torture, crucifixion, and burial, these men were trying to sort it all out that afternoon as they walked the four miles. They had been told by the women that Jesus had been raised from the dead, but they dismissed the news as "too good to be true".

As Jesus appeared and began to walk alongside them, they asked incredulously, "Are you the only person in town who is oblivious to the events of the last three days?"

As I wonder that Jesus could be right in front of them and they didn't recognize Him, I have to remind myself, that Jesus is walking life's path with me, though I don't always acknowledge Him or understand His ways.

Trust God from the bottom of your heart;

    don’t try to figure out everything on your own.
Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, 
everywhere you go;
    He’s the one who will keep you on track.
Proverbs 3:5-6
