I love my daily walk in the woods. It’s envigorating and refreshing. But I tend to stick with the familiar. After this big oak tree, I turn right, and when I hit this little path, I go left. Why change what works, right?
So when the Lord beckoned me on a different path the other day, I felt a little unsettled.
“You want me to do what?” I whispered. “Why would I do that?”
But there was no mistake–I know His voice and He knows that I do…
The going was rough, and I had to be careful where I placed my foot, one step at a time. The path went uphill for a long, long time, and I found my breathing becoming difficult at times. Sweat poured down my face.
So I kept going. Until I came to a rickety old bridge. Not quite sure that I would make it across without falling through.
And then I saw it.
A breathtakingly beautiful waterfall. A song for my soul, liquid gold for my heart.
I drank its beauty through and through.
“Wow, Lord,” I whispered.
