MUD... That Pretty Much Says It All

Thankfully we have been getting some rain lately. We are still in a drought, but every little bit helps. Unfortunately the warehouse where Tymothie (7) has wrestling practice is surrounded by mud. As we were on our way into the building to get Tym, Que showed me the best way to go. It was a lot like a treasure map, “Take three steps to your right, go around this puddle, go in front of this puddle, now step over this ditch then hop over this puddle.”

On the way out, I thought I saw a better way, so I took it. It was dark, and I couldn’t see well. I nearly fell in the mud! Que looked at me and through gales of laughter said, “You had to go your own way didn’t you?”

As Christian we get tired of going God’s way sometimes, and try to do it our own way. We forget the verse that says

Your word is a lamp for my feet, and a light for my path.

Psalm 119:105

He knows the way; all we have to do is follow.
