I read an interesting statement in a small book today…The author pondered, “I wonder
whether struggle is the confirmation that we’re on the right road and whether blue skies are
actually a warning sign.”
She got me thinking back to several times in my life when I thought, or didn’t think, I
was walking the path God prepared for me. One time, in particular, comes to mind, and I wonder
now if I should have kept on the path and not quit when the road got bumpy and lonely, and I
didn’t want to go on.
I’ll never know what could have been, but today, as I invest in Christian Life Coaching
and train to minister as a lay counselor at church — and life gets crazier and busier — there is no
doubt in my mind that I am answering God’s call.
I have come home. This is His Will for me. No matter how rocky this road gets, I am
determined to see it through because I am convinced that it is the right road.
What a difference it makes when we are focused and sure of God’s Will. When the
grandchild gets sick and the husband needs time and attention…when the car battery dies and we
need to be somewhere…when our energy is drained and we wonder if we’ll make it until
bedtime…God is there.
His Glory-strength fills us, and we can almost hear Him whisper, “I am with you. The
struggle will be worth it. Be still and trust Me. I will work all things for good.”
And we believe.
