It’s something you’ve heard a thousand times before; God works in mysterious ways.
We’ve all been had to go through tough times before we got to the good. We’ve all made mistakes and experienced failures — be it in our personal relationships, business endeavors or our own spiritual life.
More often than not though, things usually end up working out and get better. Sometimes you have to take the long way around to get to solid ground. That’s just the way life goes. Whether people recognize it or not, God definitely had something to do with the road that got us back to happy.
That was the gist behind “Bless the Broken Road,” the song that took Rascal Flatts No. 1 on the charts for five weeks in 2005. “Bless the Broken Road” also took the country group to the Grammy Awards to collect the golden phonograph trophy for “Best Country Song.” The song was actually released twice before — once by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band in 1994, as well as by singer/songwriter Marcus Hummon in 1998. Each of them had minimal success with it, but like many of God’s creations, it found its home and happiness when it was meant to.
After all, God does work in mysterious ways.
