Continuing the Journey....With Fresh Paths
About a month ago I read a blog with this title. It came on a very good day for a new idea....continuing my journey...but with fresh paths. It seems I am not necessarily one who looks for new paths. I tend to follow the old path until all the grass has been smashed down, all the flowers have been trodden upon and all that is left is the hard barron ground. If your goal is to make it to the same place time after time without fail, with no new adventure....follow my old paths. They will take you to the same worn out area where nothing grows, nothing changes and everything remains the same. BORING and senseless. So, how about this idea...to continue the journey God has set me out on, but to take a different road to get there, to listen more closely to Him and his direction. I am absolutely positive that He is NOT sending me down that same path. That same path is my free will to be fearful of the unknown, fearful of the new, fearful of change. How am I going to get anywhere on that path except the same ole same ole which has not proven to be very rewarding. So as of today, I chose to continue my journey but on fresh paths, new paths, new directions. Surely Goodness and Mercy will follow me all the days of my life!
