While in Boston Jason and I got a chance to walk part of The Freedom Trail. It is a 2.5 mile red brick or red painted line that travels through Beacon Hill, downtown Boston, the North End and Charlestown. It travels through and by some of the most historically notable stops in the area. It is pretty hard to loose your way with the red line as your guide. Occasionally Jason and I were busy looking at something ‘old’ or talking and we would take a wrong turn, only to quickly notice that we were no longer following the red trail.
I wish God would pave my way with a red stripe. Decisions would be so much easier. You know those life choices that plague us: What to do about our careers? When to buy or sell? How to deal with difficult relationships in our lives? If I could follow a red stripe it would be a lot easier to get where I need to be. At times I just wish He would send me an email to tell me what He wants me to do. If you believe in God and believe that He has a plan for your life, then how could you not want that email. He knows much better than I do what’s best for me.
It takes a sincere childlike faith to recognize that the red path is, in fact, ahead of us, even if we cannot see it. If we ask Him to, He will lead us. All we have to do is ask.
