28 Jun Walking forward……..
Have you ever wondered what might lie ahead in the days, weeks, or months to come? Or looked back at the path you walked years ago and contemplated what your life might have been? I have. My personal life has been an interesting journey. Overcoming addiction and walking through cancer took me on paths that I never saw coming – never anticipated. Surprised, to say the least.
Not knowing which way to turn or even if I would live or die was scairy and heart wrenching. It all caused me to get on my knees for sure! Why did this happen? Now what do I do? Where do I go from here? I don’t understand. There were so many questions………….and I needed answers.
But in all of my trials and tribulations, I know today that God was with me every step of the way. When I walked in darkness, His light would always be ahead of me. When I wasn’t sure what path to take, He would guide me. Over the years, day by day, my faith in Him has grown and when I cry out to Him, I know He hears me.
If you aren’t sure what lies ahead, meditate on the truth in Isaiah 58:8-9:
“Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the LORD will be your rear guard. Then you will
call, and the LORD will answer; you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I.” NIV

So true, God is always there. We might not understand it, and yet, it is true. I like what Brennan Manning says about there being circumstances and situations where all we can ask for is “ruthless trust”.
