The Trail Ahead of Me

Ever found yourself on a path you didn’t expect to take? I’m sure you’ve noticed life doesn’t always turn out the way you planned. There’s just too much uncertainty out there. Sometimes, life just doesn’t make sense and I wish it did.

It feels like I’m on a completely different journey than the one I was on yesterday. I don’t know where I’m going now and I can’t see the end result I was so sure of before.

You see, just when I started to understand who I was God found a new way to chisel more character into me. Thanks 2020.

Now I normally wouldn’t mind a change in direction. I’ve learned to improvise and still reach the goals I had for myself, but the trail ahead seems to be more strenuous than I can handle. Is there any good in it?

If you’ve ever been hiking before, you’ve noticed the park map label each trail’s difficulty level, and if you’ve taken every level you’ll see that the hikes with the highest difficulty ratings are the most exciting to take with the most astonishing views.

Maybe the trail ahead will have some lookout points for me.

I’m aware some of us are content and comfortable with the trail we are on now. After all, life is good and you should be grateful for it.

I suppose I’m talking to the one’s who aren’t taking the easiest path.

To the one’s who didn’t expect to be facing such an impossible direction.

And to the one’s who are getting tired and need to catch their breath.

See, this blog is meant to record the uphill trail I have ahead, hoping you will gain some insight from it as well.

I know the road won’t be easy, but I’m hoping the views will be breath-taking. Despite the setbacks, I know I’m called to keep going.

“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” -Psalm 119:105
