It just seemed to go nowhere.
Out in the open acreage, I came upon a wooden walkway.
Surrounding it were thick weeds–some green, some brown and lifeless looking.
Who had built it and when?
Where was it intended to go?
Why was it abandoned?
Many questions come to my mind as I remember the boards that were carefully placed at one time.
Now, those boards are being consumed with sticks and vines, left alone to eventually rot in the sun.
Looking at the photograph brings a plea from my heart.
I don’t want my life to ever be a "could have been."
If I continually look to God for my purpose, allowing Him to use me, I will be like a walkway.
Not one that is abandoned, but one that is traveled.
One that leads to a specific destination.
One that provides a path that leads to truth.
Isn’t that what you want, as well?
Don’t you want to be available to those who need your encouragement, your listening ear and your faithful prayers?
Wouldn’t you hope that others would see your faith in God and join you in the journey drawing closer to Him?
Isn’t it the desire of your heart to know God’s purpose for you each day and to be at work fulfilling it?
Those who choose not to acknowledge the existence of God do so, I suppose, because they feel that is right.
It is the way they have chosen, but its end does not lead to life, but to death.
Which way will you choose?
A life that could have been lived for God—– or a life that was lived for God?
There is a way that seems right to a person,
but its end is the way that leads to death.
