On Fridays I join with others,
writing for 5 minutes
on 1 word
given to us by 1 fellow writer.
Today’s word is: PATH
When I think of the word path, I envision in my head this long, straight path in front of me going off into the horizon. I can see the way it goes pretty far out and it keeps rather straight with just a few minor kinks in it. I think of driving through coastal Georgia or South Carolina and the beautiful moss covered trees draping over the path. Providiing just enough shade to be beautiful.
But when I think of God and path, I don’t think of that. I think of winding ways, steep climbs and rough roads. But if I were honest, it’s all a matter of my perspective. The Lord could be leading me over or down a hard path; a new path. And I can focus my eyes on the rocks, the barrenness that might be around me or the hill that might be coming up ahead. But then I might miss the glory around me. Those moss covered trees could be right over my head,
but if my eyes are always down on the road
I’ll never see them.
