THE ROAD LESS TRAVELED
I shall be telling this with a sigh
The traveler reaches a cross-roads where he looks down both paths trying to decide which one to take. Isn't that like all of us? We reach a place in our lives where we have to make a decision? Should I take this job, or should I go back to school, should I marry this person, should I buy a certain thing, should I build a house, should I quit my job, should I allow my child to do this, or that, should I show my anger, or bite my tongue (this one is probably just me!!!)?
There are so many important decisions to be made in our lives....and, each one with a consequence....whether it be good, or bad!!
Did I always consult God before arriving at a decision...or....did I just do what I wanted, instead of what that still small voice was speaking to me that HE wanted me to do? I cannot honestly say that I've always sought God's guidance in all of the questions of life. I wish I had, because I've made lots of mistakes along the way....things that I said, or did....and God wasn't in it. Don't you wish that you could explain that to your children...or, your grandchildren...or nieces and nephews...or even a friend going thru something similar? Don't you wish they would listen to you and learn from your mistakes? I so wish somebody years ago had tried to guide me and direct me and help me to grow and learn based on some of their own life experiences!!!
Would I have listened?
I don't know!!
I do know that a lot of the mistakes I've made have been a HUGE learning experience for me!!! At least that much good came from a wrong!!!There's an old song titled "The Old Crossroads"....here are a few of the lyrics:
The old crossroads now is waiting
Psalm 119:105 (NIV)
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path. In His Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!
I absolutely love "The Road Less Traveled." I had to learn this poem for a public speaking class once and it has always stuck with me. This was such a great reminder today. Thanks :) Love you.ReplyDelete
