|A mess of grass in a field|
I turned up a nearby lane and walked up a steepish rise. Halfway up, I paused and looked down on the field below again. What a difference the change in perspective made. A clear pattern of paths, the work of the farmer's tractor and implements, was now clearly visible. I could see where the paths took a curve, where they split into two, and where they ran parallel to each other before disappearing in the distance.
|A pattern of paths|
Don't you think this picture also applies to us? Life is often overwhelming, and we don't know what will happen in the future. What should we do? What choices should we make?
Thankfully God, our Creator and Author of our life stories, is in control, and sees the pattern of our lives clearly. He knows which paths we should travel and He will guide us. After all, the Bible says;
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart;
And lean not on your own understanding,
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths."
Proverbs3:5-6 (New King James Version)
