This road reminds me of Nebraska, where I lived for 15 years. Driving it by yourself can be a nice drive of solitude…when you know where you are going.
You feel comfort…if you know that there is a town up over the hill, or you know that your farmhouse is behind that large windbreak of trees up ahead.
However, if the road is not familiar to you and you are alone, it can be a little spooky.
The road seems endless and everything looks the same, mile after mile. You feel uneasy and you need directions, but you see no one to ask.
How about the direction and the paths we take in our spiritual lives?
God will sometimes ask you to take a path that is totally unfamiliar to you.
Sometimes…you may be on a road that God isn’t leading, because you have taken a side path of your own desire…not keeping your eyes on Him.
If you find yourself on a path that feels strange or scary, remember…the Holy Spirit is your leader and if you walk close to Him, keeping your eyes on Him, you can trust Him to direct your path every time!
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.”
“Blessed is every one who fears the LORD, who walks in His ways.”
“You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.”
Thank God! He will always be a light to our path and give us peace about our decisions, when we fully trust Him!
Love and Prayers,
