"The Turn"

I went walking today and I thought to myself, I am going to turn right here. I was pretty sure that I would get to my destination faster (not that it really mattered). I looked around at the unfamiliar streets, making turns here and there all the while talking to a friend. I told my friend that I believe that God was giving me a lesson as I walked around, not sure of where I was ( At this point I didn’t know where I was). I began to feel like I should have just taken the turn I knew. I told my friend that I believed God was showing me that He wanted to take me to my destination, but not by the way that I was use to going. I began to panic to some degree because I could hear dogs and some of the houses in the neighborhood looked like a killer might be lurking around (extreme I know).

So many times we take the turn the Lord has given us, but because something doesn’t look like what we are use to seeing and it’s a little scary we begin to panic and look for a way out or off of the path we know God has urged us to take. As the streets I walked down curved and my mind wondered how much longer, there it was, the street that I was looking for. I told my friend, this is what God means when He tells us that we walk by Faith and not by sight. If God would have showed me before I took that turn some of the houses I would have to pass by and the dogs who were around lurking, I would have turned down the other street (the one that I am familiar with). The turn that would have kept me from writing this post today.Stay the course, turn where and when God tells you to, someone needs your post today.
