Inching Into The Unknown


Driving up Pike’s Peak provided limited vision. It reminded me of how we live our lives. It is scary to not see what is ahead, the fear immobilizes us. Is it safe to continue on? The answer is yes. Jesus is the guide, going ahead of us to check out the road. How many times have we pressed on through the unknown in our lives? We didn’t know what was around the bend, but looking back it is clear to see how it was worth it.

In my own life this has proved true countless times. As in each bend of the mountain road, every view was amazing! I couldn’t have imagined the new vista but it was worth pressing on to see what was ahead. I won’t live my life afraid to swing around the corner.  I have put on the brakes before, but it didn’t provide the safety I desired. The real thrill is in the journey…

Turn the corner, see what is waiting to be discovered.
