I once knew a woman who was intrigued by clotheslines. She had a photo collection of them in her home. In a similar way, I am attracted to pathways, maybe because I find them mysterious and hopeful all at once. This picture I found on the Internet is of a pathway in Scotland. The bright sunlight captured at the top of the photo seems to pull me in and beckon me forward.

In a certain area of my life, I am on a path with an unknown end. I am seeking God for answers and I do not know where He will lead. I do not know what God wants of me in the situation, and I pray I will be brave enough to follow the path He has for me.

A friend said this to me in an email yesterday: "We put our worries in His hands and then we are assured no matter what the outcome, it was for our best. This is the beauty of our faith." It was in relation to something completely different, and while I had no idea it would apply to me today, God did. :)

Psalm 119:105 says: "Thy word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path."

I will take heart in the light He gives now, and trust Him for more up ahead.
