Each day we roll out of bed and make our way (half awake) through the house to start our day. First it is to the coffee pot or in my case downstairs to let the dogs out of their kennels so that they can start their day. I must admit seeing their wagging tails does perk me up a bit. As far as this scenario plays out I think you know the rest, because eventually I get into my vehicle and head to work.
As that day begins each decision we make no matter how small builds upon the path we are on. For those who believe in God we believe that no matter our thoughts, it is He who guides our feet. Now this does not mean we walk around like zombies waiting for the next message to come down from God and then act upon it. This merely means that for us there are little clues or even large ones that help guide our feet; the rest is up to us to make the right decisions.
When I look at the things I decide to do, each one is a pebble to be placed in front of me that will create the road I walk on. Some pebbles are bigger or smaller, but each one nonetheless causes the road to be built.
For some people the decisions they make will be some of the hardest of their lives and it might seem like that pebble they have to place down in front of them weighs a ton. Regardless of its weight it must be put down; we are the builders of our road and at times we will have to ask for assistance.
If you find that the pebbles to be placed on your road are too heavy, know that God sent down a stone that is the bedrock your road is being created on. Jesus Christ is that foundation and with Him all things are possible. Knowing this we must also see those times when we are too weak and must ask for help; it is okay. This is exactly what God expects from us because He has already directed someone to be on your path to be that blessing. Allow them to be the instrument God has intended them to be by receiving the blessing God has intended for you through them.
So think for a moment about all the pebbles you have laid down to build the road you are on today. Is it wide enough? Is it smooth enough? Does it have a lot of curves or is it simply straight? Is it built on flat land or in the mountains? Whatever the attributes of your road; no one road is perfect. Each are unique to the builder which makes them all the more interesting, thereby making the travel on them a wonderful adventure with God.
Don’t worry about the width of the road too much because God will always make sure that there is enough room for someone to walk on beside you and behind you.
Have a great day builders!
