Roads lead away from everything familiar, everything known, and everything already experienced into an unknown future, unknown and often unrecognized opportunities, experiences that are sometimes shrouded needing to be searched for and unveiled. This road leads to life and all of its offerings for abundance, fulfillment, purpose and service for everyone courageous enough to travel thereon. Covered by beauty at times, overwhelmed by the elements at other times, trees cover it with darkness, and sometimes the road may become a mere path through frightening forests or meander through dry and thirsty deserts. But, travel you must, one step at a time and sometimes alone.
Everything unfamiliar becomes the norm and order of the day away from this scene of beauty. But, such is life with its ever winding roads, expressways, paths, trails, highways, byways, or mere hikes in striking and challenging terrain, heading somewhere with new familiarities, new visions of beauty and possibility.
“We walk by faith, not by sight” – II Corinthians 5:7 NKJV
That is where life is . . . rich, beautiful, fulfilling and prosperous! All that and more in the forever altering scenarios of that for which we all seek “. . . life and that they may have it more abundantly.” — John 10:10 NKJV
Don’t allow what you see today engage you in fear or distress! What you see on the road of life may be unfamiliar, but it is still rich with what will be new familiarities, new blessings, new opportunities, and new ways to trust God.
Trust God by walking on, though alarmed by unfamiliar observations or experiences, keep moving and don’t allow yourself to be arrested in time. One step at a time, one day at a time, believing God for an outcome, deliverance, and a destination of purpose within His plans for your life. Keep on walking by faith.
