Sometimes, the simple things speak the loudest.
Like the brand new baby snail I noticed yesterday morning schushing along the narrow strip of pond ledge in the back yard. Just one false move, a little slip up in either direction would prove catastrophic, I thought.
Honestly, snails never last long once discovered anywhere near my plants, but I took pity on the poor thing and stood watching the huge life analogy playing out before me.
We’re all on that ledge, don’t you think? We could either tumble to uncertain terrain below and take the bumps and bruises. OR, plunge in over our heads to the lonely depths of sin and darkness.
It’s walking that narrow ledge that takes perfecting. The space between the obstacles that always leads us onward and safely home - the narrow path of righteousness
I lead in the way of righteousness, in the midst
of the paths of judgment (Proverbs ) KJV
I pray and ask that you set my feet on the path of Your perfect will. Be in my decisions and choices that affect my life and the lives of those around me, that I may glorify You in all I strive to do. Thank you for simply providing the path between the obstacles and for the times You’ve saved me from the fall.
