There are two ways to live our lives…OUR way or HIS way. Difficult or easy. It is your choice.
Let me explain.
The first way, is OUR way. We just got about our lives, not trusting in the greater wisdom and purpose of God in our lives. We wander along our paths, meandering here and there. Alone. You might reach the end of the path, but along the way you have become anxious and bitter. You don’t see the beauty on the trail because you are so focused on how bad the path sucks. It is in the full sun, hard and steep. It’s all about you and your abilities…you don’t need anyone. You think that whatever happens is just random with no meaning and you hate the world for it because you are suffering. Yeah, you can still get over things, but life is just…well…whatever.
You can walk along the “Trust Path“. This trail is direct. It’s beautiful. Shaded. God is right there with you walking the path. You stay right on it because you trust that He is leading you right where you are supposed to go. Sure, things happen along that way that might suck…but you know that they are temporary and that there is a purpose for them, so it is OK.
Proverbs 3:5-6 says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not unto your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.”
I have been on both paths before and there is no spoiler alert as to which one is better…
