Missing the Signs

a2z: ‘D’ is for Detour

Blured detour sign
Most of us see this sign when we are driving and know we need to take a different route.
But how many times does God put a big old DETOUR sign in our lives and we pass by seeing only a blur?
I’d like to say, “That never happens to me.” or “God needed to be a little louder or sent me a bigger sign.” 
Lately, I’ve been trying to push God away when opportunities to speak about the We’re Not Blended, We’re Pureed, A Survivors Guide are offered.
I wrote the book, exposed our family to the public, isn’t that enough? Why do I need to be filmed or participate in workshops? I’m done, right? It’s time to concentrate on what I want to write.  Fiction.
Well, how about this sign?
Digital road sign, message reads Yes,the road is closed.
That’s it exactly what I want to say back to God, but He’s not having any of that.  
He’s sent more opportunities my way–not all for the Blended book–but they involve me speaking to people, even being on a video panel. 
My fiction writing seems to be stalling, is it because I’m choosing my own detour and not His?
I think I’m going to start following His detours before He closes the road to my fiction writing. 
What detour has God put in your life? How did it turn out? I need encouragement so please share.
