I’m Next In Line

freight cars on train tracks

The other day while driving I was forced to stop at the railroad tracks while a train was passing. I thought to myself “Well, let me put my car in park, we’re probably going to be here awhile.” I’m not sure how long the car two cars ahead of me had been in line but about 30 seconds after I pulled up the driver of that car pulled his car out of line. He proceeded to turn his car around and go back in the direction in which he came. When the driver drove past the car behind me I looked over and saw the last car on the train about to pass the tracks. As the gates lifted I thought to myself “as soon as the car ahead of me passes, I’m next in line.” How many of us lose our patience with the situation we find ourselves in and get out of line only to find that after you’ve headed back to where you came you could’ve been next in line but someone else was blessed to take your place? Are you next in line?
