In the beginning, when choosing to walk on the less traveled road, there’s no need for a destination–the joy of the journey is enough to inspire and sustain the strength for each step.
So it has been for me on my journey to share beauty minutes.
Joyful. Beautiful. Inspiring. Strengthening.
And then, last week, I found myself at a fork in the road, with an even less traveled path on my right. I stopped and searched for direction:
This is what the Lord says: “Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.” Jeremiah 6:16 NIV
I asked. And heard this:
Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.” Isaiah 30:21 NIV
Turn right, said the voice behind me.
Lay everything down here and walk alone for the next leg of the journey.
Write your story, your WHOLE story and finish it.
Pursue your healing, your WHOLE healing, and finish it.
Enter the cocoon of my transforming grace, and allow me to complete the work I have begun in you.
Because the soul that sees beauty may sometimes walk alone.
I must leave you here, dear friends and fellow beauty seekers. I must turn right and follow this road less traveled–alone.
He is always faithful to lead us upon the path He has uniquely crafted for each of us.
We must be faithful to follow.
Even when it means letting go of something dear. Wandering into the unknown. Testing our survival skills in the wilderness. Acting the opposite of what the world tells us to do. Daring to discover. Downsizing. . . to the divine.
On May 1st, 2013 I will turn right. This blog will be laid on the path as an offering of praise and worship.
I thank God for this journey, for teaching me how Beauty chases us, catches us, and propels us forward into living wholly for Him.
It’s been a joy sharing the journey with you.
Praying for His beauty to propel you forward on the path He is revealing to you.
