“Meanwhile, the Midianites sold him in Egypt to Potiphar, Pharaoh’s officer, the captain of the bodyguard” (Genesis 37:36).
Like Joseph, our lives can take many unexpected twists and turns; leaving us in less than desirable circumstances. When those occasions arise try to focus on the word “meanwhile.” “Meanwhile” insists that the story may not be over as we think. “Meanwhile” leaves cracked the door of opportunity. “Meanwhile” reminds us of the Yogi Berra-ism, “It ain’t over till it’s over.” “Meanwhile” leaves us anticipating the rest of the story. Be assured, there is a “meanwhile” to be found in the narrative of your circumstances.
