All the paths of the LORD are lovingkindness and truth To those who keep His covenant and His testimonies. ~ Psalm 25:10 NAS
I begin a new journey today down an unknown path that has appeared before me and my family trusting in the goodness of God. This is a path I was not searching for, never really wanted truth be told and definitely never saw coming.
I believe God has set me on this new path to benefit my family and others both those I leave behind and those I have never met and who am I to say no? I leave behind many good things including friends and colleagues; work that matters and makes a difference, but I am trusting that the Lord will allow those relationships I have built that are edifying to continue. I thank those who have impacted my life and helped me to this point, you know who you are, never doubt the difference you have made.
In my life most changes have occurred because I am running away from something as Jonah ran from God’s call to go to Nineveh, but not this time. I am following God and the path I believe He has unexpectedly opened before me. Believing we regret those things in life we did not do more than those we did.
I am anxious, nervous and unsure but excited and trusting in God for the future. I believe that living only within your comfort zone does not make you comfortable but makes you complacent. This complacency may extend to those you interact with around you and no growth or change occurs in our lives. Change is inevitable, growth is optional and we are left to choose.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
