Some days, I feel like I am driving on the road to Nowhere. I look ahead, and all I see are obstacles in my way. Insurmountable mountains loom in my view with no clear destination. Danger, my mind tells me. My whole being wants to turn around and run the other way.
Do you ever have days like that — days where you feel like you are moving forward with blinders on? The traffic is congested, and misguided motorists are crowding you off the merciless road.
Hold fast, I hear a voice behind me say.
I must stick to the route. I must follow Him onward. I must cling to my compass when I don’t know which way is True North.
I must tightly fasten the seat-belt of Truth and join Him on a journey.
If I don’t persist and choose instead to turn away, I will miss the Beauty on the other side of that majestic mountain.
Stay on the true path, my daughter.
Adventure awaits somewhere ahead.
Barricade the road that goes Nowhere;
grace me with Your clear revelation.
I choose the true road to Somewhere,
I post Your road signs at every curve and corner.
I grasp and cling to whatever You tell me;
God, don’t let me down!
I’ll run the course You lay out for me
if You’ll just show me how.
Psalms 119:29-32, MSG
Q4U: How do you hold fast to the road when the way ahead is unclear?
I am sharing “The Road to Nowhere” and joining like-minded sisters at Words of Life Wednesdays, Tell His Story, A Little R and R, Testimony Tuesday, Soli Deo Gloria, Rich-Faith Rising, Playdates with God, and Hear it on Sunday: Use it on Monday.
Let’s hold fast together in 2014.
