No other path.
No where else to go.
This journey of faith is not easy. The hills are very steep and the roads wind around blind corners where it’s impossible to see what’s up ahead. And the valleys go down….
But it’s never complete darkness. No matter what is happening, God is always next to me, shining his light on the way I should go.
Sometimes I can’t see the light because I’m distracted – I’m looking away – at something else – like my fears, my worries or my grief.
But I just have to focus on him and God is there –
He is faithful.
There are times when my eyes and thoughts wander, but they always come back to my Heavenly Father. Because there is no other Truth.
There is no other perfect love.
There is no other direction to go in this world that will take me where I want to eventually go – home with my Father.
So I have to smile when Peter says essentially these same words. Peter was watching as Jesus offended some of the people who were following by telling them the truth. It wasn’t what they wanted to hear,
so they left.
Jesus turned to Peter and asked him if he wanted to leave, too. And Peter answers, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of Eternal Life.”
I’m with you on that, Peter.
There is no one else to follow. There is no other place I want to go.
There is no turning back.
So I move forward – trusting, growing and loving God.
Thank you for the truth, Abba Father.
