Do you ever wonder what path to take? _____ My trust has been in so many things over the years. Family, friendships, sports (swimming for me), school, hobbies, career, popularity, boyfriend, health, animals/nature, drinking. All these things failed me in one way or another. None of my trust, hope, or belonging was secure in any of these things. _____ Family & friends die or disappoint/ or I would disappoint them. I injured myself in sports, my boyfriend cheated on me, popularity is like the tide, health issues came up, drinking left me depressed. _____ I’m not saying all these things are bad things to want. With the right motive they can be wonderful. But, I was putting all the trust of my heart into them, and that left me so very broken. _____ That’s why Proverbs 3:5-6 is my favorite Bible verse. It’s the only thing from all my years of longing & searching where I’ve found a peace that surpasses understanding. A belonging that can’t be taken. A love that isn’t wishy washy or in pieces. _____ Trust in the Lord with all my heart. And trusting His path for my love. Just as a mother bird that can fly can know the best way for a baby bird who can’t fly to get to safety, even greater is God’s perspective over our lives as if we were that baby bird. _____ I’m longing today as I was 10 years ago when I gave my life to God to have Him show me the paths to take. They aren’t always the easiest paths, but the ones that will bring the most beautiful destination. _____ For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it. -Matthew 7:13-14 _____ We find it by trusting in Him, reading His word, following the light which is Jesus. _____ Do you, like me, ever wonder what path to take in decisions in life? Love hearing from you!
