Have you been there? I have –
I’ve found myself on a slippery path before.
A decision was made without a lot of thinking and – boom – I’m slipping down a slope – going somewhere I never wanted to go. Or the wrong thing just slips out of my mouth to the wrong people at the wrong time and now I’m stuck in a place where it’s said, it’s done.
How did I get here?
Jeremiah tells us about how slippery our paths can become when we wander away from God. He says we can feel like we are being chased through the dark – how did he know about our middle of the night fears and anxiety?
I know there is only one thing to do when I find myself going down a slippery path or find my anxious thoughts chasing sleep away in the middle of the night.
I need to turn to God. He will lead me back to solid ground. He will guide my thoughts with his truth and his love.
There are no slippery paths with God.
Thank you, Abba Father.
