Show me the path where I should go, O Lord; point out the right road for me to walk.
From the book Whispers of Faith:
When you come to the edge of all the light you know and are about to step off into the darkness of the unknown, faith is knowing that one of two things will happen: There will be something solid to stand on, or you will be taught how to fly.
When we walk with God so many times we have the the opportunity to step off into the darkness and trust.
Through those times when:
Prayers remain unanswered and left hanging into thick heavy space
The phone call that is so anticipated never happens day after day
The mail person never brings the letter we so much want to read
Our Loved one dies in the midst of our deep and earnest cries of prayer for healing
There are paths we all must walk and often we come to an edge
where the question of trust is really the the most important question we can ask ourselves.
Do I … Do we… trust God so much that through our blindness… we see hope given.
Do we dare to ask him for Faith so firm that when we find ourselves on unknown paths and rough places we can trust Him.
We can trust Him to lead us.
When we come to an edge… and feel afraid…
we must take a risk.
To trust… or not…
To take that step of obedience or of faith…
To believe that GOD is who He is and He is providing a path for our journey and to trust that HE is our solid rescuer.
We are like blind people searching for someone to lead and guide us through the step of obedience.
Even if it is baby steps. Tiny steps toward a new destination… into a new life.
As we walk this path and move from darkness to light may we be ever so thankful that HE is a mighty guide for us always as we choose to move closer to Him and trust in the process He is taking us through.
