Sometimes I wonder what our life paths would look like if graphed like a map and seen from an aerial view. How many twist and turns, switchbacks and straightaways, deadends and bypassed options would we see then? Would we have chosen differently if we knew what it looked like from God’s perspective or have we already made those choices? LIke most of us, my life has been a mix of the two. I wonder how many of my own roads would look similar to the branch in the picture…
The following quote is a favorite of mine–I see it almost every day. It has been a comforting reminder when I have been in need and an encouragement in times when my vision for the future was obscured by the realities of the present.
“When you come to the end of all the light you know, and it’s time to step into the darkness of the unknown, faith is knowing that one of two things shall happen: Either you will be given something solid to stand on or you will be taught to fly.” ~Edward Teller
Whatever God’s choice for your next step is, I wish you a wonderful weekend relaxing in the knowledge that He really does have a plan…and it’s for our good (Jeremiah 29:11).
Never–not even for a second–believe otherwise!
Grace & Peace! You are loved and prayed for today!
See you back here on Monday!
