Five Minute Friday: Path
The Gypsy Mama shares this great idea to write every Friday for 5 minutes on a topic.
Want to take five minutes with me and just write without worrying if it’s just right or not.
First post of the summer…after almost a year. Don’t know how consistent I will be…life is already crazy, and it’s only been a week since my normal crazy life ended. Today, I write on PATH: perhaps this can give you some idea of what I am up to lately. Forgive me if my writing is a little rusty.
I would be more inclined to say “paths” since I so often have a variety of them to choose from. Recently, I have decided that I would go back to college and work to get my credential. Along the way, I had so many paths to observe from the starting point that I am at. It was all a little overwhelming since I didn’t really know what I was looking for. And worse, once I started looking down each road, they all offered something different. I have had to weigh all the components of all the different options, and at times have begun to doubt that I even knew how to choose. I wanted to see the end of the road that each path offered. What I have come to realize, however, is that I need to take my mind out of the “paths” (and definitely off trying to figure out where the end of the road leads) and realize that I just need to join the path of God’s direction. All these paths seem so confusing, but when I focus on just taking that first step down the leading of the Holy Spirit in my life, I find that all the paths converge and become part of a greater plan. I can’t see the end…but God is “Already There,” directing the chaos and knows how it all turns out. How faithful will I be in allowing Him to guide each step I take along the way?
