The Path Ahead
This pic is from yesterday’s hike with Chandler and my Adventure Sisters. It struck me that we were all gazing at the beautiful view in front of us. That is where I find myself daily—straining to see the beautiful view but often seeing an obscure path shrouded in darkness and mystery. I don’t know what each day ahead will hold. That’s where trust comes in. By the grace of God, I have waded and crawled through lots of crap in my life and found myself safely on the other side, and I have no reason to believe the strong hands of the Lord will fail me this time. I will cry. I will feel as if my heart can’t beat again. I will be angry. I will be unpredictable in my emotions and reactions. But by the grace of God, I will choose to trust Him. In Christ, with Christ, and through Christ. My life, my stability, my strength, my hope. The path ahead is unclear to me, but it is not unclear for the one who leads me one step at a time (Jeremiah 29:11).
