In “the story of WITH: A Better Way to Live, Love & Create” by Allen Arnold Mia finds herself at a cross roads. In the distance she sees a sign to civilization. The other is an overgrown path where she finds the remains of her father’s truck. He has been missing for twenty-three years. She takes the path less traveled.
Ever day we make choices: what to have for breakfast, where to go, who to see, what to watch on TV, what clothes to wear, to be happy, or be sad, to serve or not, to work or play and so on. There is never a day decisions are not made.
What path are we choosing to walk? Are we following the path with the clearly marked signs or taking the rough unmarked one? According to Allen, “easy and best are rarely on the same path.”
My walk with God has always been like that. He points me towards a path that looks impossible and crazy. Then there is always another path that looks so much easier and less nonsensical. Whenever I take God’s appointed path without any clues of where it leads, it always takes me closer to Him.

One thought on “Signs”
Juel, I love that you included “to be happy or be sad” among the choices we make — I believe that is true. It really is the same as choosing, “to trust God or not to trust Him,” because when we trust we can relinquish the things that make us anxious, concerned, and sad. Laying down the burdens and letting Christ carry our yoke with us leads to happiness. Thank you, Juel!
